George and Alfred Burdick


Alfred James Burdick (1865-1930) and his son George Asa Burdick (1891-1975) were a part of the Lynn community during its transition from a pioneer settlement to modern times.  They are pictured above in their "new fangled" automobile in front of their log cabin home around 1919.


Alfred and George were descendants of Robert Burdick who emigrated from England around 1633.

Lynn Pavilion


Stucture Burns to the Ground Early Sunday Morning - Loss $2,000

(By: News-Herald Correspondent- September 24, 1939)


LYNN -- The Lynn Pavilion, owned by Arthur Grassman, was destroyed by fire of unknown origin between 2:30 and 3:00 a.m. Sunday.  A dance had been held in the Pavilion Saturday night, and Mr. Grassman had left the building about 1:30 a.m. Sunday. He was unable to account for the outbreak of fire in the building. The flames were not observed until they were beyond control.  The loss was estimated at about $2,000. A new gas stove, two beverage coolers, and other fixtures were destroyed with the building. Mr. Grassman said only a small amount of insurance was carried.
