The square was a convenient place for slaves to wait for their masters while they attended church. They waited under the shade of a tree at the entrance to the square, close to where the carriages were kept.
The original tree which became known as the Slave Tree was cut down but has now been replaced by a similar one.
The square was declared a National Monument on 17 February 1961.
