The Park was established in the 18th century. The wrought iron fence was installed in 1771 to protect the statue of King George III (pulled down in 1776). The Kennedy Mansion, on the left, was the headquarters of General Washington. It was the site of a tavern in the 17th century. On the right, we can see a public hand pump water fountain and the old Adelphi Hotel, a big building at the time, with six floors, destroyed in the Great Fire of 1845.
