Land deeded to Sulphur Well Park
Jobe Publishing, Inc.
In 2000, Judge/Executive Butler signed a lease agreement with David Froggett, Sr. allowing 1.57 acres of his private property bordering Sulphur Well Park to be used for the purpose of a walking trail, built by grant funding.
The lease agreement was for 30 years and was set to expire in 2030. In January, David Froggett, Sr. passed away, leaving his family to settle the estate.
Last week, the family made the generous decision to donate the 1.57 acres to the Sulphur Well Park, so that the walking trail and park’s perimeters can be maintained as they are.
“I know that it would please David to know what the family has done in his honor,” said Judge/Executive Harold Stilts. “I am thankful for their generosity in this, towards the park in the county.”
The family’s only request is that a plaque with an inscription in honor of David be placed in the park. The county plans to do so in the near future.
