The Republican Institution in the Town of Boston was incorporated in 1819, it appears that the Institution was formed because, in the language of the subscription paper, it was deemed to be "absolutely necessary that the Republicans of the Town of Boston should be possessed of some respectable building wherein they may meet together to transact their business, and also a place to receive their Brethren from all parts of the Union." The meetings of the Institution were at first held at the "Old Court House," at the "Market Hotel," and at "Davidson's." In March, 1822, a room in the "Merchant Hall" Building was hired, and fitted up. This room is called in the records the "Corporation Room"; and meetings were held there until 1830, when this room was given up. From 1830 until 1840 meetings were held at "Concert Hall"; from 1840 to 1855 at the "Bromfield House"; from 1856 to 1886 at the "Parker House"; and since 1886 they have been held at "Young's Hotel," except that in 1887 the annual meeting was held at the "Tremont House."
