Minute Man National Historical Park

Minute Man National Historical Park is located in eastern Massachusetts, between the towns of Concord and Lexington. The park preserves various houses and structures, as well as significant points of interest from the opening battle of the Revolutionary War. These include places such as Paul Revere’s Capture Site, a British troop burial ground, and the North Bridge, where colonial soldiers were first ordered to fire on the British. Many famous houses were also preserved, including The Wayside and the Orchard House, where Louisa May Alcott wrote her famous novel, Little Women. In total, the park protects just under 1,000 acres of history and the natural landscape surrounding it.
