Company History: Phineas Taylor Barnum (July 5, 1810 – April 7, 1891) was an American showman, politician and businessman remembered for promoting celebrated hoaxes and for founding the Barnum & Bailey Circus (1871–2017).

The circus business was the source of much of his enduring fame. He established "P. T. Barnum's Grand Traveling Museum, Menagerie, Caravan & Hippodrome," a traveling circus, menagerie and museum of "freaks", which adopted many names over the years. Barnum died of a stroke at his home residence in 1891, and was buried in Mountain Grove Cemetery, Bridgeport, which he designed himself.
