On this site, then 39 Queen Street, Robert Bowne, New York merchant, philanthropist, and educator, established Bowne & Company in 1775.
The company is New York's oldest business concern operating under the same name since its founding.

Robert Bowne helped to establish the city's first free school, first bank and first fire insurance company.
This plaque has been erected 200 years later, in 1975 by South Street Seaport Museum which maintains a restored Bowne & Co. stationary and printing shop one block northwest of the site on Water Street.
