At the listed coordinates you will find a plaque honoring Justus Ohage St Paul Commissioner of Health during the early 1900s. Ohage was concerned about public hygiene and mortgaged his own home to purchase an island on the Mississippi River where he had public baths erected. He donated the island and the baths to the city suggesting that it be named Harriet Island in honor of St. Paul's first educator, Harriet Bishop.
