In 1914, Andrew Peterson's cottage at Beechwood, located just above the upper canal, was completely destroyed by fire on this morning. No one was living in the cottage at the time but the fire started in the kitchen and it was thought that probably some person or persons had been there recently and left a fire burning in the stove. The building was two stories in height and was a good substantial house, not being of the summer cottage variety. The Lakewood Fire Company was called out and while the firemen could not save the cottage, they prevented the blaze from spreading to nearby cottages.
