Lexington Battle Green Walking Tours

On the one-hour tour, you will explore the many notable sites surrounding this National Historic Landmark with our costumed guide. You will learn about the notable sites and historic houses around Lexington Battle Green, where “the first blood was spilt in the dispute with Great Britain,” as George Washington wrote in his diary.

It is considered consecrated ground, both for the bloodshed on it and for the militiamen who are interred here.
Some highlights include:
The iconic Henry H. Kitson Minuteman Statue
The Revolutionary War Monument, a granite obelisk erected in 1799, where the remains of seven militiamen killed in the battle are buried.
Captain John Parker monument inscribed with: “Stand your ground. Don’t fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.”
The Old Belfry, which sounded the alarm on April 19, 1775, calling the militia to the common.
The Old Burying Ground where Captain John Parker, ministers John Hancock and Jonas Clarke, and an unknown British soldier are buried.
