FBC celebrates spiritual, historical mark on city

157-year-old church unveils historic marker during weekend ceremony


“I told Jack I had no idea on how to go about it and he told me to organize a committee to help me,” Sneed said. “He passed away one week before we realized we were going to get the marker.”

Sneed thanked Borden, his wife Edith, and all the church members “smiling down on us” for their work in getting the church to this point. Bordens’ nephew and family spokesman John Westoff said Jack Borden was “the fire who started the quest for the marker.” There is plenty more history to the church to come.

“The final history of the church has yet to be written,” Westoff said.

Westoff and Sneed unveiled the marker, which sits on the west side of the church near the marquee sign across from city hall.
