There isn't a whole lot to see here other than some plaques and statues. Many of the buildings near the green that were around in the 18th century burned down. It's more about sitting there peacefully and trying to imagine the colonial militia anxiously awaiting the arrival of the British on that April morning before dawn....

My wife, two dogs and I happened here on a weekend when a troupe was reenacting battles of the Revolutionary War. This only takes place twice a year. Though the "soldiers" were not yet marching on the filed while we were there, they did have exhibits set up on the lawn demonstrating Revolutionary era firearms, field surgical equipment and the...

Lexington, where the Minutemen had their first Revolutionary skirmish. The place that started the American Revolution where the Battle of Lexington and Concord took place. The place offer a wealth of history and if you are a part of guided tour then be ready to get all the historical information. If you are a traveller photographer, many nice views to... More

When you are on the Green, your body gets the chills thinking at one time History was made on this spot and a battle took place where you were standing. Great place to go and teach your kids about the History here. Ron from New Mexico.

If you take time for nothing else in Lexington, you must walk around Lexington Green, the site of the first armed encounter of the Revolutionary War. The iconic Minuteman statue is the most recognizable, but the other monuments on the Green also help evoke the tension and drama of that misty April morning. As a bonus, it's a pleasant little...

Imagine what it must have been like waiting for the Regulars in this very spot. This is considered the start of the Revolution. You can't be a history buff without making a pilgrimage to this stop. It's a simple Green, but powerful. Must see!

We were wandering around the green, reading the monuments, and various brochures from around town, when we came upon a high school student volunteer in period dress sitting on a bench in the park. He asked if we would like the talk, and we agreed. He was very knowledgable, and had an obvious love for history, especially of his own... More

There was a costumed guide on the green who pointed out the positions of the militia and the Redcoats during the conflict.. So sad that men died probably because of an accidental firing if a musket.

Lexington is a historic colonial town famous for its Revolutionary War history and its Minutemen. We found street parking and walked to the nearby visitor’s center where ladies in period dress offered several touring options designed for our schedule and interests. While we didn’t take the tavern tours, we walked by two of them just for the architecture and history.... More
