This plaque commemorates the historic site of
Jordan Marsh


In 1841, nineteen year old Eben Dyer Jordan began a remarkable and innovative journey that would lead to the founding, with partner Benjamin L. Marsh, of the renowned mercantile establishment whose flagship store was established at this location.
Simultaneously, a young adventurer named Rowland Hussey Macy left his family home on Nantucket to begin a dry goods store in the heart of Boston.
While this venture was short-lived, "Captain" Macy gained valuable experience which eventually led to the creation of the famed retail landmark that bears his name.
On March 25, 1996, the name Macy's came home to its roots as these two great institutions merged to begin a new era of retailing traditions throughout the New England community.
