Travel Tips for Lexington

Jonathan Harrington House

by SteveOSF

Jonathan Harrington was one of the militia under Captain Parker’s command who faced the British Regulars early in the morning of April 19, 1775 at Lexington Green. Harrington was shot during the fight. He managed to crawl to the doorstep of his home near the Green. Unfortunately, he perished right before his wife, who ran out of the house, was able to reach him.

The house of Jonathan Harrington is located just across the street from Battle Green. It is a private residence.

The Shot Heard Around the World

by KarenandCory

The Battle of Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775 was the first battle of the American Revolutionary War
The Battle is re-enacted every Patriot's Day in April.

The British are Coming

On Suday night (day before Parriot's Day) around midnight, Paul Revere arrives on horseback to warn that the British Regulars had left Boston and were on their way towards Lexington and Concord. You should be able to see Paul Revere on Massachusetts Ave around this time.

Lexington Battle Green
"The Shot Heard Around the World"

The reenactment of the Battle of Lexington, performed by members of the Lexington Minute Men Company and His Majesty's Tenth Regiment of Foot starts at 5:45 A.M. on Monday morning.
ARRIVE EARLY
Hundreds of people arrive by 5AM or earlier. It can be difficult to find parking. Also, many parents bring ladders for their kids to climb up on so they can see. You want to get there early to get a good spot.
The reenactment at the Battle Green is way more interesting and fun than the Parades in neighboring towns and Boston.

It was early in the morning on April 19, 1775 when Paul Revere began his famous ride. By dawn, British soldiers were advancing on Concord, where they intended to arrest several leading revolutionists, including Sam Adams and John Hancock. But the Minutemen met the British on Lexington Green, where the shot heard around the world was fired.

Historic Preservation Commission at work

by Pawtuxet

I didn't have to be told we were in a National Historic District to know that the people who constructed this Dunkin Donuts definately had to go before the historic commission when they built this donut shop. Just goes to show you that not every chain food store has to be so irritably ill designed as most of them are. Whoops! My prejudices are poking out again. Too many years of struggling to preserve our village, I guess.

early American spires

by Pawtuxet

These chalk white church spires always look beautiful in small New England towns. Their simplicity is classic. I like to visit the interiors whenever I can. Unfortunately we were passing thru late in the day and had to promise to return when everyones' doors are open.

Bicyclists' acknowledged

by Pawtuxet

Bike path passes thru the park, but is screened by greens. When bicyclists and pedestrians enter a crosswalk....the traffic STOPS. Sometimes we have issues with this sort of thing where I live. The day we were in Lexington it was a quiet afternoon and everyone was moving pretty slowly...with plenty of consideration for cyclists...which is refreshing.
