About

The Great Negro Mart was here.

A slave dealing company was here. The following information is from the Maine Antique Digest, June 2014, at p. 23-B, which was a report on a 3/27/14 auction sale at the Swann Galleries, NYC. The article has a picture of the slave dealer's business card for Great Negro Mart, No. 87, Adams Street, Memphis, Tenn. It advertised Hill, Ware & Crisp's company. If you Google you will find quite a bit about the location on the Web, for ex., http://www.forksoftheroads.net/ser_boxley/nb_forrest.htm.
