The first Board of Health in Boston was established in 1799, under the special statute of February 13, 1799. The first collected edition of the statutes under which this Board acted was published in 1811, and contained also the regulations of the Board. That Board had in substance the same powers as the present Board of Health, and was abolished by the first city charter. From 1822 to 1873 the functions of the Board were exercised through the City Council. The present Board of Health was established by an ordinance of December 2, 1872, and organized January 15, 1873. It has published annual reports since 1873.
