Lush grass and a handful of sights to visit on this almost 2 acre green. Sometimes the visitor center will have period dressed guides about who can give a tour. Lots of dogs and kids playing also.

It was a great place to visit and get a eyes on history lesson. They keep the site well preserved. I'm very impressed with Lexington for their effort in keeping this site clean.

Great time. Arrived at the green to find a volunteer dress in colonial garb giving free tours. Very friendly and informative. My only complaint was having to leave.

A place for history buffs.....this is the place where it all started. Battles of Lexington and Concord are the sites where the opening shots of the Revolutionary War were fired April 19, 1775. The "Green" itself is a large field with several monuments on it....More
