The tornado of July 7, 1915 did considerable damage to the community of
Bromley. Numerous streetcar wires and telephone lines were blown down.
In addition, many homes suffered the loss of shingles and windows. Major
damage, however, occurred at the corner of Pike and Main Streets. The
roof of George Rolsen's saloon was blown off and dropped on a small home
owned by Harry King. King's home was completely destroyed. The roof of
Henry Beckman's saloon was also destroyed by the high winds. Fortunately,
no one in Bromley was killed during the catastrophe.
