Walk the route of the battle of Lexington and Concord, the opening battle in the Revolutionary War, when you visit Minute Man National Historical Park. Walk along Concord's North Bridge, where militiamen fired back at British troops for the first time, known as "the shot heard round the world." Look at the Minute Man Statue of 1875 and the Obelisk Monument, believed to be the country’s first memorial to casualties of war. You can walk the 8 km (5 mi) Battle Road Trail between Lexington and Concord, where British troops and Colonial militia fought, and see a monument at the site where Paul Revere was captured during his famed midnight ride. Visit Hartwell Tavern, a restored 18th-century inn, for history programs that are presented during certain months. The park also holds The Wayside, a home where the famous authors Amos Bronson Alcott, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Margaret Sidney once lived.

Minute Man National Historical Park reviews
So much history of the American Revolution and the Brave minute Men and Patriots that made our great nation what it is today. Absolutely Beautiful and breath taking sights, many museums in the area... more »
This is a great historical sight, well done. Along with the visitors center, there is a several mile trail that you can walk to see the running battle between the British & the Colonists... more »
Classic place to visit. Made me think about how hard early Americans fought and died for our freedom. Freedom is NOT FREE. Beautifully preserved park and site for all to visit. Big free parking lot invites walkable easy access. History still relevant today. Love the colors of the Fall leaves and standing on the bridge to watch the water.
We take all of our out of town guests here. Nice presentation. Walk on battle road passes a number historic sites and buildings. In season there are people dressed as people from the 1700's willing to tell you about they represent. You can also drive to Concord and Lexington which are close by
