    I think it’s about time we change the name of that part of town…

    “Frogs” are being misrepresented here! I take offence to this and I speak for ALL frogs, toads, and other random amphibious species!

  • S. R.

    It was named Frogtown because of 2 reasons.
    #1 it was built on swampland
    #2 It was first settled by a large contingent of French Immigrants.
    Proud to say I was born and raised there. Not all of its bad.
