Tremont Row (1830s-1920s) in Boston, Massachusetts, was a short street that flourished in the 19th and early-20th centuries. It was located near the intersection of Court, Tremont, and Cambridge streets, in today's Government Center area.[1] It existed until the 1920s, when it became known as Scollay Square.[2] In 1859 the Barre Gazette newspaper described Tremont Row as "the great Dry Goods Street of Boston."[3]
