Scope and Content: These bonds bear signatures (sometimes “x” marks of illiterate persons) of individuals renting stalls at the Durham City Market for selling meat and agricultural products between 1886 and 1921. Stall renters included both whites and African Americans, although the race of individuals is not provided in the records. Two separate series of bonds were kept intact, the first being the earlier bonds and the second including those from about 1913-1921 (a few earlier bonds are included in the second series). Records are arranged alphabetically by surname within each series. When more than one surname is included, the bond is filed under the initial name, with a cross-reference for additional names.
Restrictions: The collection is open for research
Biographical/Historical Note: By 1886 the Durham City Market was located beside City Hall at the corner of Church and Peabody streets. In the early 20th century it was located on Corcoran at the corner of Chapel Hill Street. By around 1910 it was located on Foster Street at the corner of Watkins.
