This is the site of Wharf Street - a block-long maze of maze of stacked lumber, barrells, jostling horse-drawn wagons and carriages; of sea captains, sailors, harpooners, stevedores, and tradesmen; of coopers, boatyards, sailmakers and smithies - all servicing the maritime trade.

With the precipitous decline in whaling, after the disastrous fire of 1877 Wharf Street was never rebuilt. Later the landfill was dredged away to provide docking space for the side-wheelers and steam packets that commuted to New York City.
