The Buttonwood Agreement, which took place on May 17, 1792, started the New York Stock & Exchange Board now called the New York Stock Exchange. This agreement was signed by 24 stockbrokers outside of 68 Wall Street New York under a buttonwood (sycamore) tree. A tree like that has been kept outside the NYSE building ever since (and is still there)!
