Shown here on a platter, the building was named for Isaac Johnson (Johnson Hall, Court Square), one of the earliest settlers of Boston. The architect was the well respected Bulfinch. The initial cost of the white marble structure, built in 1810, was $92,000. In the left background is the two story building housing the Columbian Museum. This view was also used by Stevenson and by an unknown maker.
