Excerpt from The Public Rights in Boston Common: Being the Report of a Committee of Citizens

The attempts to turn Boston Common to semi-private uses, or to encroach upon its boundaries, have been so per sistent, that it has seemed best to give a history thereof for the past eight years.

We begin, therefore, with the attempt to place upon the Parade - Ground, in 1869, the building for the great Musical Festival of that year.

As will be seen by the record, permission was granted to erect a building there. The popular feeling Was so strong, however, that the managers Of that enterprise deemed it injudicious to accept the grant, and the building was placed upon land farther south and west. It is a fact, also, that at the time a committee of citizens had decided to appeal to the Supreme Judicial Court, if any attempt to build was made, and that eminent counsel were of Opinion, that the City Council had exceeded its legal powers in making the grant.
