1909 Standard Issue

In 1909, in May to be exact, a tornado hit the south side of Fowlerville, working its way across the railroad tracks. In my book, The Fowlerville Chronicles, the 1909 chapter fully explains the damage caused by this storm.

At the time of the destruction, there were two newspapers currently being published in the village -- The Fowlerville Review and the Fowlerville Standard. Following you will find the Fowlerville Standard's front page after this storm. Original copies of these newspapers can be found in the historical collection housed in the village office's council chamber. If you would like to check out this and other originals, you are more than welcome to visit with me every first and third Tuesday of the month at the village office at 9 am.
