William Trent House

The William Trent House has significance to the city’s African-American history as a
surviving eighteenth-century residence known to have a slave population. The
inventory of Trent’s estate at the time of his death included nine slaves, seven male and
two female. Although the locations of slave quarters are not known, the household
servants are believed to have lived in the main house. The William Trent House
Museum interprets the lives of the Trents’ slaves as part of its interpretation of the site.
