In 1798, a fire destroyed the Federal Street Theatre in Boston, Massachusetts. The theatre was the first theatre designed by an American-born architect and was popular enough that no time was wasted in reconstructing it and the new building opened its doors the same year. This 1798 cent recalls both the destruction of the old Federal Street Theatre and the completion of the new one.
