Council Names Thomas Boggs Boulevard

Posted By on Wed, May 21, 2008 at 4:00 AM

Tuesday, the City Council approved "Thomas Boggs Boulevard," an honorary street name change on Madison Avenue from Rembert to Barksdale.

"We have lost a wonderful citizen in Thomas Boggs," said council member Barbara Swearengen Ware. "I'm glad this honor is being bestowed on him. I'm just sorry that he is not here to receive it."

Boggs, the founder of Huey's and partner in a number of local restaurants, passed away in early May.
