Boston Aquarial Gardens, Bromfield Street, 1859

The Boston Aquarial Gardens (1859-1860) was a public aquarium in Boston, Massachusetts, established by James Ambrose Cutting and Henry D Butler. The "conservatories [were] filled with rare marine animals imported and collected exclusively for this establishment; ... a perfect and striking illustration of life beneath the waters." The business was located on Bromfield Street in the Financial District.

In 1860 it moved to a new facility nearby, on Central Court, off Washington Street, and re-opened as the Boston Aquarial and Zoological Gardens.
