Newport Milling Co, c. 1901
1108 Monmouth


“Newport, Ky., Feb. 10. - At an early hour Wednesday morning, Newport was visited by a $10,000 blaze.  The fire almost totally destroyed the Wehenbold Milling Co.'s mill at 11th and Monmouth streets.  The sire started on the third floor of the mill from unknown causes.  It is thought, however, that it was due to spontaneous combustion.”  from Richmond, Kentucky's The Climax, Feb. 17, 1897. “Newport, Ky., July 19. - Fire started this evening in the oil room of Unnewehr's sawmill, probably caused by a gasoline explosion.  Within two hours the flames, fanned by a strong breeze, had spread two squares south and east two blocks.  The Covington (Ky.) and Cincinnati fire departments were called on and sent a number of engines.  Fifty families are rendered homeless.  Loss estimated to be between $125,000 and $150,000, with but comparatively little insurance.” NY Times, July 20, 1898.
“A firm in Newport lately shipped to Boston, Mass., 50,000 feet of poplar backing for picture frames, and 75,000 feet of drawer bottom material.” Courier-Journal, August 9, 1870 Canon explodes inside a Monmouth Street Bar.
