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.
