Here we are at 40-44 Bromfield Street. Depending upon how you date the beginning of Boston University, perhaps this site marks the true origin. Back in 1839, LaRoy Sunderland, along with a small group of other Methodists came together to discuss theological education. The result? $15,000 was raised to start the Newbury Biblical Institute, 170 miles north in Newbury, Vermont. 31 years later that institute would evolve into the founding School of Theology for Boston University.
