Fredrick C Boger purchased 38 acres of land in May of 1995 with money he earned singing in his church choir. This land served as a quiet retreat from city life for over 40 years. When Boger passed this land to the District in 1999, he had two requests: the land would be named Boger Bog and it would be opened for the public to enjoy. Boger Bog may or may not be a bog. At this location, you will learn if it is or is not and why.
