The Scottish Connection and Sarasota/



I saw this historical marker on Sunday last as I was walking back to my car after  lunch at the Marina Jack restaurant.

It's at the intersection of Gulf Stream (Rd ) and Main Street a bit east of Bayfront Drive and the Marina Jack complex.

Some of the more hardy Scots stayed here.  One was John Hamilton Gillespie who became Sarasota's first Mayor, and also helped to create the Church of the Redeemer, Sarasota's oldest Episcopal Church.

There is a funny spelling error on the historical marker.

Can you spot it?

What do you think the word should have been?
