1902 - Wind Storm

Adams, Mass., March 20. - A high wind which had prevailed all Tuesday night suddenly assumed cyclone proportions yesterday and considerable damage resulted. Covered vehicles were overturned in the streets, chimneys were demolished, trees were uprooted and the spire and belfry on the First Congregational church was wrenched off. In falling the spite took with it two large cupolas and a portion of the roof from the parish house which adjoined the church. The damage to the church property is estimated at about $3,000. The high wind was accompanied by snow.
