1899 - Lightning Strikes Steeple
Ipswich, Mass., June 16. - During a heavy storm last night lightning struck the steeple on the South Congregational church and soon the entire building was in flames. The firemen saved the main structure. Lightning also struck Caldwell's block and did some damage. The play of electricity was so general that many people were prostrated, but no serious cases have been reported.
