The Boston Almanac was an almanac and business directory in 19th century Boston, Massachusetts. Its offices were destroyed in the Great Boston Fire of 1872.[1] The first almanac was published in 1836, and continued annually until at least 1894. Just about all editions contained a chronology of major events in Boston for the previous year or two years. Each almanac contained business listings, advertisements, and often city and/or state department information. Railroad, omnibus, and horse car companies were usually listed in a separate section. Some volumes highlighted famous buildings or places (such as Mount Auburn Cemetery).
