1817: The New York Stock & Exchange Board is founded. The exchange called a rented room at 40 Wall Street home until that location was destroyed in the Great Fire of New York in 1835. From then on it moved to a couple of different locations before opening at its current location in 1902, by which time it had changed its name to the New York Stock Exchange.
