History of Wall Street

Wall Street originated in the early 1700s when Dutch settlers built a wall to protect their stock exchange from local Native American tribes. This wall of wooden palisades later became known as Wall Street.

Throughout its history, Wall Street has undergone many changes, both in its physical form and its influence on the global economy. In the late 1800s, the area was redesigned, and the iconic statue of the Bull was placed in the center of the area. The Great Depression of the 1930s had a tremendous impact on Wall Street as the stock market collapsed and companies went bankrupt.

In the mid-20th century, Wall Street experienced a massive influx of investment from banks and other financial institutions, leading to rapid growth in the financial industry.

In 2008, Wall Street was hit hard by the global financial crisis, leading to the collapse of major banks and other financial institutions. In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic caused another stock market crash, resulting in a massive sell-off of stocks.
