Although Boston was founded almost 400 years ago, this Financial District was formed only after the creation of the financial and insurance industries in the 1800s.

The area because established along King Street, now known as State Street. Merchants chose to establish their offices along this root as it provided them with direct access to Long Wharf. The establishment of strong financial and insurance industries in the 1800s brought banks, commercial buildings, and insurance houses to the area, giving it the feel that is characteristic of today’s Financial District.

Many of these buildings were obliterated during the Great Fire of 1872, Boston’s largest urban fire to date. Not long after, in 1891, the Boston Stock Exchange opened at the corner of State and Congress streets, exemplifying Boston’s significance as a capital of finance.
