Travel Tips for Lexington

15 Star US Flag

by emilienoelle

This 15 Star US Flag is located in a special room within the National Heritage Museum. I mention it because it is one of only 2 in existence, the other one being the Star Spangled Banner on display at the Smithsonian Institute of American History in Washington DC. This flag was hand sewn of home-spun wool and linen sometime between 1795 and 1818 and the stars represent the original 13 states plus Vermont and Kentucky. Historians believe that it once flew over a fort or ship. Preservation of the flag was done at the American Textile History Museum in Lowell, my hometown. The museum suggests calling ahead to view the flag, as the room it is displayed in is not always open to the public. 781-861-6559

The Munroe Tavern

by emilienoelle

The Munroe Tavern is located 1 mile down Mass Ave. from Lexington Center towards Boston. It is famous because it served as the headquarters for General Earl Percy of the British Army as well as a hospital for wounded British Soldiers after the Battle of Lexington. Admission is free.

Minuteman Statue

by emilienoelle

This statue of Captain John Parker is perhaps the most famous statue in Massachusetts. It is depicted on the back of the Massachusetts State Quarter and serves as an easily recognizable icon of our state. It was erected in memory of those who died on the morning of April 19, 1775.

Historic Homes of Patriots

by emilienoelle

Lexington's downtown area is full of homes that predate the famous Battle and thus the United States itself. These homes, though privately owned, come under a strict set of rules and regulations by the Historical Society. They are only allowed to be painted certain colors and any renovations are closely monitored to insure adherance to historically accurate building styles. Historic houses which were formerly the homes of Patriots are marked as such with plaques and visitors are allowed to view the grounds and photograph them, though not allowed inside. A friend of our family owned such a house when I was growing up, the home of a former doctor who took part in the Revolution, and it was not uncommon to find people out in the yard with cameras!

Patriotic grounds

by Pawtuxet

The flag pole at the grounds where the patriots assembled is awesome. Everything looked so great in the late day sunshine. The grass is like a carpet and there were folks lingering...enjoying the remainder of a long holiday weekend. We envied the town square or green area which anchors the town and its history. Massachusetts and Connecticut both have lots of these town squares, however Rhode Island didn't develop in the same style. Our towns are all very linear in comparison. Just an observation.....
