Haverhill, April 26. - The R. H. Page building, at Groveland, where the town offices were located, was burned to the ground this morning. Before the fire was gotten under control damage aggregating $20,000 was done.

The cause of the fire is unknown. It was the worst blaze that has occurred for years in the town. The building was situated near the end of the Haverhill-Groveland bridge, and was the leading business block. When discovered the flames were burning briskly in a closet in the barber shop of Henry Howard on the second floor, and had worked their way along through the partitions.

The building on the ground floor was divided into three stores, occupied by Thomas H. Renion as a street car waiting room and cigar store; C. P. Boynton, grocer and R. H. Page, the owner of the building, who managed another grocery at the southeasterly end of the structure. The second floor was occupied by Henry Howard, barber, the Public Library and the town offices. The third floor was divided by Merrimac Council, Junior O. U. A. M., and Papahanna Commandery, U. O. G. C.
