1983 - Arnold Bartschi Loses His Swiss-Inspired Home to Fire

On July 23rd, 1983 a fire ignites in Arnold Bartschi’s home. The building, located on Swiss Pines grounds, is inspired by the architecture of his home in Swizterland. Due to the remoteness of the building fire fighters have a difficult time quelling the flames and have to rely on tanker trucks and a nearby swimming pool. The building and its contents are fully lost.
