Squire Borden Lot 5 Block N—[marker]

Perhaps Squire Borden had a life-long affinity to water because he was born on the Atlantic Ocean.  He spent his adult life collecting tolls on the Suspension Bridge over the Mississippi River.  He named one of his sons Admiral Farragut Borden after the United States Navy’s first admiral.  Admiral Farragut (the sailor, not the child) served during the Civil War.
