“Different”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

A small historic buildng that welcomed George Washington to it during the Revolutionary War.hard to describe its significance otherwise, but it is well worth seeing and personnel in period clothing make for an informative visit.

“Cool old house”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

The house is nicely redone, with an excellent video about the history. However, aside from the night before Patriot's Day, it's yet another historic house. Worth a short visit.

“Lexington Treasure”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

The Hancock-Clarke House is a great way to begin an exploration of the town of Lexington. An informative video is shown, a great large map of the area is on one wall that is explained by a knowledgeable volunteer, and a nice gift shop is adjacent to the house.

“Give yourself enough time to see this!”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

After our bus ride, we didn't have as much time as we'd like to visit the 3 historic sites. This house was awesome - loved the video and first part of the very informative tour, but needed to leave early, unfortunately, so we could also tour the Buckman Tavern. Wish we could've stayed through the entire tour! Also liked the musician in the barn telling stories and singing songs.
