Minute Man National Historical Park
Minute Man National Historical Park Review
Along Highway 2A is a three-parcel park with 1,000 acres. The park contains many of the sites important to Concord's role in the Revolution, including Old North Bridge, as well as two visitor centers, one each in Concord and Lexington. Although the initial Revolutionary War sorties were in Lexington, word of the American losses spread rapidly to surrounding towns: when the British marched into Concord, more than 400 Minutemen were waiting. A marker set in the stone wall along Liberty Street, behind the North Bridge Visitor Center, announces, "On this field the minutemen and militia formed before marching down to the fight at the bridge."
North Bridge Visitor Center (174 Liberty St., 01742. 978/369–6993. Apr.–Oct., daily 9–5; Nov., daily 9–4; call for winter hrs.).
