This cup was found in the ashes that were left in the wake of the Great Fire of 1901. The fire, which occurred on April 6, 1901, destroyed much of the the business district of Lisbon Falls. The disaster rendered 31 buildings to smoldering ash, and left 50 families homeless.
A seal on the front of the cup that reads: "Columbia Lodge No.26 K. of P., Lisbon Falls, ME"
