Just next door we have 36 Bromfield Street.
In 1870, Boston University found a new home for its founding School of Theology in this Second Empire structure (cf. attached photo). In doing so, the School of Theology had come full circle, coming back to the very street were it was imagined 31 years earlier.
The School of Law would also move here in 1872.
It’s also interesting to note that next door, the famous India Queen Tavern was bought by the teetotaling Methodists in order to be taken out of business. This entire block became a center for Methodists enterprises, including its Temperance Union.
