I grew up here but this national park did not exist back then. It is great to see the preservation of our history and historical buildings. There is a lot of information now at the site, which is great for self guided tours. The area...More
After seeing the Old North Bridge (a replacement of the original) and the Minuteman bronze, we were lucky to join a 30 minute, outdoor ranger program about "the shot heard 'round the world" (an Emerson phrase, used during the Centennial celebration). Park volunteer, Howard, did...More
