The Lexington Green visit provides a life long memory, not only for the historian, but for any visitor, especially those with ancestors who fought in the Revolutionary War. We were delighted to be there week prior to Patriot's Day witnessing the rehearsal for the reenactment of the Battle. Don't miss the historical tour that takes you to Concord and the... More

We visited here with a group touring historic sites on 4/6/15. To the naked eye, it's just a very large, triangular field of grass. But, the soil that grass grows in was once soaked with the blood of the first lives that were given in the American Revolution. We were fortunate to visit this site as part of an historical... More

The Lexington Green is inspiring, particularly during the holidays when the homes around the Green are decorated for the holidays and the town puts up a tree. Picturesque, very New England with the large old homes, church steeples and commemorative castings.

Lexington is a history buff's dream. Be sure to visit in April during the weekend of Patriot's Day. There are re-enactments of the battles all around Lexington and Concord. The battle green re-enactment is the best and you need to there at 4am to get good viewing. After go to one of the many pancake breakfasts offered around the green.

A great place to have a picnic and enjoy the main street on Lexington. The Carey Library is just across the street and not to be missed.

Lexington is rich in colonial history. The well-maintained town common(green) is where the first battle of the Revolutionary War took place. There are also many other historical sites surrounding the green that commemorate the town's history.

Visited yesterday and it was a very warm and wonderful fall day. After visiting Buckman Tavern my wife and I walked around Lexington Green. Standing there it is very easy to imagine the world changing events which took place there. We really, really enjoyed our visit.

I passed by because I was in Lexington and had to stop. But really should have spent more time at one of the many battlefield stops. But on a fall day, very pretty.

The green is fascinating to visit. Not much to see other than the several markers around the green and the Minute Man statue. But if you are in the area, you must see it.

This was our second visit to Lexington Green. I suggest starting off at the visitor center for a brief history of the skirmish. They have a nice diorama depicting, as well as they can, the events of that day. At the Green, the visitor center will have a guide in period clothes to answer questions. There are several houses you... More
