Site of Denning Exeter St. Slave Pen

Site where the business of slavery once took place.

While nothing remains to indicate what once transpired here, we pinpoint this location to memorialize the victims of enslavement in America.

This was one of two locations where John N. Denning was operating. He was here at 104 N. Exeter Street in the early 1840s. (Street numbers were changed in 1887, making this 264 N. Exeter today.) His other location was on S. Frederick Street, near Water Street.
