Incorporated in 1811, MGH has traditionally been regarded as the nation's premier general hospital. The domed, granite Bulfinch Building was designed in 1818 by Boston's leading architect, Charles Bulfinch.
It was in the hospital's amphitheater that, on October 16, 1846, Dr. John Collins Warren performed the first public demonstration of a patient being anesthetized using ether; the place was promptly nicknamed the "Ether Dome." You may visit the amphitheater today when it's not in use (admission free; open daily 9–5).
