“History abounds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013

A town full of historical buildings and the green is a gem. The British and Patriots fought here and the tour guides, year round, give a superb commentary on the events of 1776. It is a beautiful spot to take a break and sit on a bench to enjoy the town center and savor the history of America's freedom.

“Heart of the Nation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

I pass this place almost daily, it never fails to inspire. If possible, drive up the avenue from Camb. at night and see a beautiful view of the Minuteman with the moon and the church steeple inbetween.
