A Must See for the History Enthusiast

Beautiful location with green flowing hills down to the bridge. Wonderfully maintained and a must on the list of Rev War related sites in the area. Highly Recommend!

Friendly visitor center, short well-done 8 minute movie to explain the historic significance and an easy walk to the bridge and monument.

If you like your history this is a must place to visit. Read also 'Minute Man Monument'. Worth doing a little research before you visit to get a feeling for how important this small pice of America really is.

Shot heard 'round the world? C'mon...if you are entertaining anyone from out of town this is a "must-see". Some of the park rangers are particularly good at sharing the history. This is where it all began, of course! And if you are around early in the morning on Patriot's day, the re-enactment of the start of the American revolution, complete... More

I have visited the area several times and always stop here. So peaceful now. Full of history. Don't forget to go over the bridge and walk up to the museum/headquarters for more information. Very emotional.

This is a very pretty area and the bridge is magnificent. It was strange to stand in a place where so much fighting had taken place yet, today, it was so peaceful.

If you have time and a car, drive 30 minutes to Minuteman National Park. Beautiful area. From the bridge, walk up the hill to the headquarters of the park in an old estate still be renovated. The Old Manse is right there too.

Such a gorgeous area, and the history is outstanding. I've been here maybe 4 times in the past 5 years, and I still want to keep going back. It is such a beautiful, charming area, and the historical significance is incredible. You can explore/learn as much as you want to, or just stroll around.
