Proprietor of the City Hotel and Restaurant [located on the south side of Front Street between South Sixth and South Fifth Streets] 1886-1904

Judge of Probate 1902-1923

      It is quite evident that J. T. Sanborn will not keep his loose change in a wooden box hereafter. On Sunday night while the night clerk was absent from the front room of his restaurant for a few moments some thief removed his treasure box from behind the counter and departed with it, and Mr. Sanborn says there was $350 and a silver watch in it. He found it the day following in the alley broken open but none of the money was found sticking to the sides of it. No clue has been obtained as to the identity of the thief. (Brainerd Dispatch, 11 October 1889, p. 4, c. 5)

                  Fine Lake Cottages.

      Robinson & Rowley, the contractors and builders, are building for N. McFadden and J. T. Sanborn a splendid cottage on the shore of Round Lake. It is located at the top of the hill just this side of Bishop's stopping place one of the prettiest sites for a cottage that could be found anywhere. The building will be 20x20, a story and a half high with a lean-to along one entire side for a kitchen and dining room. It will contain six rooms down stairs, and there will be room for four chambers up-stairs. A six foot veranda, enclosed with wire netting will be built on the lake side. This will probably be the best cottage of this character in this vicinity.
      C. H. Paine is building a cottage at Gull Lake on the Rocky point near the old mission. This is unquestionably the finest point on the lake. Mr. Paine's cottage will be 16x18 feet, a story and a half high, with a lean-to on the rear for a kitchen. A porch enclosed with wire screening will be built across the front.
      H. McGinn is also building a cottage at Gull Lake only a short distance from Mr. Paine's. Mr. McGinn's cottage will be 16x18, a story and a half high, and [with] a front porch enclosed with screens. These cottages with the old Gray place being repaired at a cost of several hundred dollars, will have a tendency to bring out more visitors to this beautiful sheet of water for a summer outing. (Brainerd Dispatch, 14 July 1893, p. 4, c. 5)

      N. McFadden and J. T. Sanborn have just finished an eight room cottage at Gull Lake where they recently acquired a tract of 40 acres of land. The place is a very desirable one lying just south of the Gray place which has recently been remodeled. (Brainerd Dispatch, 21 July 1893, p. 4, c. 4)
