Francis and Mary Usina Bridge
The Francis and Mary Usina Bridge Marker, St Augustine, Fl.
This bridge was named in honor of civic leaders from St Augustine and North Beach, Francis E. and Mary Borum Usina.
The text on the marker reads as :
" Named in honor of the St. Augustine and North Beach civic leaders, Francis E. and Mary Borum Usina. Just as the bridge spans the North River to connect the St. Augustine mainland with Vilano and North Beach, so too the Usinas were strong links between the communities. For half a century Captain Usina skippered the sightseeing vessel, Victory II, on Matanzas Bay: with his wife Mary he pioneered in the development and improvement of North Beach as St. Augustine expanded to include that area."
Francis E. Usina - 1900-1973
Mary Borum Usina - 1909-1989
