The oldest historic site in Freetown

Another one of Sierra Leone’s notorious marketplaces is the King Jimmy market that sits at harbor of Freetown along Wallace Johnson Street. The market gets its name from King Jimmy, a ruling Chief in the late 18th century who burnt down the first attempt at a free settlement by freed blacks from London.
