Caption: Frederica 's The Flesh Market ( Butcher Shop )
Additional Description: Records identify this lot as the site of the "flesh market" or butcher shop. Some of the animals slaughtered here were raised on farm plots alloted to the settlers outside of the town walls. The trustees of the colony agreed to supply the settlers with rations of beef, pork, cheese, flour, and other provisions for one year. After that they were expected to raise their own livestock and crops. The butcher shop must have been a simple clapboard or thatched hut. Archeologists found no trace of a building here. The butcher probably lived on a lot directly behind this one.
