This area was set aside in 1829 by
Carroll's founder, William Tong,
for a market house, a place where
goods were bought, sold, and traded.
Neighboring Market Street got its
name from the planned structure.
However, Tong died in 1830 and
the market house was never built.
A sawmill stood on this site in
the canal days and after its removal,
this tree-filled area was surrounded
by a picket fence into the early 1900's.
Known as Triangle Park due
to its shape, it was officially named
Bessie Benson Memorial Park
in 1988 for a local civic leader.
