Cowan, Dr. L. Stephan, editor of the Hinckley Enterprise Angus Hay, and Catholic priest Fr. J. Lawler. After saving himself in the gravel pit, Hay travelled by handcar and train to reach Pine City and confirm the news of Hinckley’s annihilation. After losing everything but his subscription book and some files, his newspaper was back in print four months later. 57 The City of Hinckley rebuilt its town hall on the footprint of the original building. It was dedicated on May 1, 1895. The Eastern Minnesota railway was a division of the Great Northern commandeered by Minnesota business magnate James J.

The house could not be built on mortgaged land. Upon completion, it was furnished with basic furniture, utensils, linens, and tools. The survivors were also given a threemonth supply of food and feed for the family horse or cow. Even with adequate shelter, the long winter was a trial for the pioneers who resettled the area. The commission’s final report declared that 2,636 people had been given aid and 215 new houses were built in the burned-over area. The Great Hinckley Fire spelled the end of commercial logging in most of the area.

During the fire, Webster saved himself in the shallow water of the gravel pit, but he lost his wife, Belle, and his parents in the disaster. He called the first meeting of the Hinckley Building Association on September 10, just nine days after the town completely burned down. He reestablished his business three months later, and in 1896 he married another fire survivor, Nellie Brennan. This 1910 photograph shows Webster standing in the doorway and Nellie demonstrating a modern-looking lawn chair.
