1. Franklin Square Marker
Inscription.  Franklin Square remains virtually as it appeared at the turn of the century, and is surrounded by buildings dating back to as early as the 1830's. Many belonging to the prominent Marvin family important in the history of Saratoga Springs, but more often associated with the United States Hotel, one of the grandest and largest in the world during the 19th century. Franklin Square evolved into a center of fashionable health related hotels and homes. It suffered decline during the early 20th century and is now being restored into unique shops and residences.
 
Erected 1984 by Franklin Square Associates.
