Ever wonder what the old Boston Garden looked like inside before they demolished it? Home to the Boston Celtics and the Bruins as well going back to the birth of those two New England franchises, the “old” Garden was built in 1928 and called “Boston Madison Square Garden” before being shortened to just “Boston Garden” or even just “the Garden,” as locals often called it.
Luckily for fans of Boston sports, someone took some footage of the old Garden just before it was taken down after the “new” Garden — now called “TD Garden” — was finished in 1995. The old Garden sat vacant for three years, but would finally be demolished in 1998.
Take a look at the video walkthrough of the old Boston Garden embedded above, whether it’s a trip down memory lane or the first time you’ve seen that hallowed ground for yourself.
