In October 2020, the National Parks of Boston, the Museum of African American History, the City of Boston, and the Middle Passage Ceremonies and Port Markers Project installed a marker at the end of Long Wharf recognizing Boston’s participation in the Transatlantic Slave Trade.

Many merchants in colonial Boston owned and trafficked in enslaved people and profited from the goods produced by enslaved labor. Peter Faneuil, the benefactor of the iconic building that bears his name, built a Transatlantic financial empire as one of these elite colonial Boston merchants.

Join the National Park Service as it explores the complicated legacy of Peter Faneuil and the central role of slavery in shaping Boston’s 18th century economy.
