Borden's Condensed Milk Company was located on the far north end of 17th Avenue in Monroe. The founder of the company, Gail Borden, was granted patents in 1854 for unsweetened condensed milk and in 1856 for sweetened condensed milk and opened his first plant in Connecticut. The Monroe Borden's condensery operated from 1902 to 1927.
