Beautiful early stock certificate from the Boylston Market Association issued
in 1867. This historic document has a vignette of a city street. This item is hand signed by the Company’s President and Clerk and is over 151 years old.
The Boylston Market was at the corner of Boylston and Washington
Streets in Boston. It opened in 1810. It was named for Ward Nicholas Boylston, John Adams’ second
cousin and a benefactor of Harvard College. Over the market is the
main building called Boylston Hall, where several churches were
organized, as well as a variety of theatrical ventures. Boylston Hall was
leased for several years to the Handel and Haydn Society, and had also
been used by the public schools for drill purposes. The building and
associated complex was owned by the Boylston Market Association,
of which John Quincy Adams was the first president. The land was
bought at 75 cents a foot, and the building cost $20,000.
