‘Power Plant Explosion’


The following information and letter about the Power Plant explosion was submitted by Jr. Murray.

The Cameron County Press headline at the time of the explosion was: “3 Die in Power Plant Explosion Monday – First Fatal Accident in Company’s History.”

Jr. copied a letter from his grandmother, Frances Murray, which he hopes our readers will enjoy; her comments about the last powder company in Cameron County. Her residence was located at 255 East 6th Street Extension, the last house on the right side.

Jr.: “This is a letter from Frances Schwab Murray to her oldest son of three sons, Riley (Bus) Murray Jr. postmarked January 12, 1957.”
