Malone Farmer, October 23, 1901.

Edgewood Inn, situated about half mile from the Ampersand hotel, and owned by the Ampersand company, was totally destroyed by fire last week Tuesday night. The hotel could accommodate about 75 guests; it was insured for about $15,000. There was nobody in the house at the time and the origin of the fire is unknown. Later report says that the loss is about $8,000, including contents. Thomas Dewey had been running the place but moved on Monday of last week. He had not taken all his furniture away and his loss is quite heavy, with but little insurance. It is not believed that the house will be rebuilt.
