Between 1807 and the 1870s, tens of thousands of enslaved Africans were liberated across the Atlantic and settled in Sierra Leone. For thousands of these recaptives, many walked through the King’s Yard Gates located on Wallace Johnson Street. Many Liberated Africans crossed through the gates into the yard to get processed at the Liberated Africans Department, where they would then be placed as residents in mountain villages along the Western Peninsular and Freetown
