Walking Tour of Historical Boston University

11 Ashburton Place

Boston, Massachusetts 02115, United States

Created By: Boston University


11 Ashburton Place marks the sixth home for School of Law. It’s now demolished, but Mt. Vernon Church once sat here. Boston University bought the granite building built in the Greek Revival Style and renamed it “Isaac Rich Hall" after BU's third founder. It was perhaps the most impressive of all of BU’s earliest buildings (see attached photos).

Interesting fact: Early law students paid $100 for the first year’s tuition, $50 for and their second year’s tuition. Their 3rd year tuition was free.

We'll now make our way back into the residential portion of Beacon Hill on the other side of the State House.
