Buckman Tavern is a historic meeting house located at 1 Bedford Street in Lexington, Massachusetts (about 14 miles northwest of Boston). The tavern is located across from the Lexington Battle Green, also known as the Lexington Common National Historic Site. Several dozen members of the Lexington militia met in the Tavern in the early morning hours of April 19, 1775, after Paul Revere famously rode West from Boston to announce the impending arrival of the British soldiers. The tavern is featured in the background of many famous illustrations of the early confrontation.
The Hancock-Clarke House is a two-story colonial-era dwelling located at 36 Hancock Street in Lexington, Massachusetts (about 14 miles west of Boston). This 1737 house was the boyhood home of Revolutionary leader John Hancock, and was where he and Samuel Adams hid from British authorities at the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War. It is only about one-quarter mile away from the Lexington Green were the historic first battle occurred.
Wright's Tavern was built in 1747 by Ephraim Jones. Jones operated the tavern until 1751 and twenty three years later, it was the site of the first meeting of the Massachusetts Provincial Congress. In April 1775, the tavern was the assembly point for Concord's Minutemen before the Battles of Lexington and Concord. The building has been well-preserved since the colonial period and is historically significant given the building's association with the Battle of Lexington and Concord at the start of the American Revolution.
