    Jonathan Harrington House

    Jonathan Harrington House

    Fondest memory: 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.

  • Community Movie Theatre

    The Flick Marquis

    Favorite thing: Lexington has it's own community movie theatre called the Flick, a rare thing in these days of megaplexes. This little movie house has 2 theatres inside, one downstairs and one upstairs. They often show second run, independent, and foriegn films and they make their own popcorn so it's hot and fresh when you buy it. As an added bonus, their ticket prices are lower than those at the big theatres. Located on Mass Ave. downtown across from Depot Square.

    15 Star US Flag

    Favorite thing: 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
