This is the place where the great American Revolutionary War started (though folks from Concord may disagree). There's a few markers but otherwise its just another public park. A few kids were playing frisbee on this hallowed ground when we visited. Stop by the nearby...More

Pretty much as expected. Tombstones and monuments in a large green space. But hey, you gotta' go! To not surprise parking is problematic.

History abounds in the area and the Greens are at the center of it. Where the 300 British marched early one morning in 1775 and met some 120 colonials standing on the green. An unknown shot rang out and the British shot down a dozen...More

the green is where the local militia gathered on April 18-19, 1775 on their way to Concord to fend off the Brits. There is nothing much to the green except the great history of the place.

Wonderful and historic. A must see, make sure to walk around the town and visit the museums. Lexington is rich in history, beautiful and peaceful.

You will appreciate the history of this site even more, as it is recounted by the Guides dressed in period clothing, who walk about the green. They really bring the story to life!

Lexington Green is not huge compared to Boston Common or Central Park. It is a large grassy area where colonists faced the British in April of '75. The Minuteman statue is the significant structure, but that is as it should be. Surrounded by older homes...More
