About

Slave pens were here, now Busch Stadium.

"On this site were the slave pens of Bernard Lynch, who ran one of the largest slave markets in St. Louis. What remained of the pens was demolished in 1963 to make way for Busch Stadium, home of the St. Louis Cardinals." This quote is from the New York Times Magazine, 2/16/20 at p. 52, article by Anne C. Bailey, accompanying photograph by Dannielle Bowman.
