It is grass. Non historical trees surround. But it is our humble history. Made more humble by the history of the massacre of ill fated American gun fans.

Beautiful spot to soak in the history of this critical spot. This area does not take longer than 30 minutes tidily explore.

A large "green" space in Lexington wher the American Revolution's first shots were fired. It is amazing to think of the history on this small piece of ground. It was even more powerful after watching the film at the Minuteman Visitors Center further toward Concord...More

Where it all began - a beautiful and historic place. Three buildings dating back to the battle in 1775 are still there, along with an interesting memorial. The local guide in Colonial costume, George, gave a fantastic tour - be sure to look for him.

Set in the center of Lexington, this is a large lawn of historical fame. It is lovely, restful, and perfect to walk around or just stop and sit.

Lexington Green is an open space centrally located at one end of the downtown. It's easy to walk to, and take photographs of some historic markers. They're not as clear as I would expect, however they were quite good after visiting the Minuteman national historic...More
