British troops, seeking to seize colonial militia supplies, clashed with the local minutemen in Concord. The confrontation marked the beginning of the war for American independence. The Old North Bridge, which spans the Concord River, was the site of this historic battle and is now part of Minute Man National Historical Park.

Old Chapter House, 1708.

The earliest sections of the Thomas Pellet House, off Monument Square and across from the First Parish Church in Concord, date to 1670. The house has had a number of additions, much of the present structure being completed by early in the eighteenth century. The frame house is notable for its stuccoed facade, intended to imitate stonework and most likely added when Benjamin Barrett owned the house in the 1730s. The house was later the home of Dr. Ezekiel Brown, a surgeon in the Revolutionary War. In the nineteenth century, the house became known as the Deacon Tolman or Old Tolman House, after owner Elisha Tolman, who had a shoe shop next door. Another owner was Thomas Heald, a lawyer and member of the Concord Social Circle. Harriett Lothrop, who wrote the Five Little Peppers stories under the name Margaret Sidney, lived in the famous Wayside in Concord and saved a number of historic houses in town in the later nineteenth century, including the Old Tolman...

1716 – Concord’s Colonial Inn’s original structure was built.

1775 – One of the Inn’s original buildings was used as a storehouse for arms and provisions during the Revolutionary War. When the British came to seize and destroy the supplies, the Minutemen met them at the North Bridge on April 19th for what became the first battle of the American Revolution. The event is commemorated every April with a parade near the Inn and a ceremony at the North Bridge on Patriots’ Day.

1835 – 1837 – Henry David Thoreau resided with us while he attended Harvard.

Mid 1800s – The building was used as a boarding house and a small hotel, named the Thoreau House after Henry’s aunts, the “Thoreau Girls.”

...it was probably built sometime around 1740 as the home of Thomas Jones, a blacksmith who lived here until his death in 1774. His son Elisha then inherited the property, and he went on to become perhaps the most notable occupant of this house. lostnewengland.com

In 1775, local blacksmith Elisha Jones lived here. When British soldiers retreated from the skirmish at the North Bridge, one soldier fired his musket at Jones standing near his shed. The musket ball missed Jones and struck the house. In 1863, local abolitionist and U.S. Marshall John Shepard Keyes purchased the home. Keyes actively shaped the memory of the North Bridge and assisted in placing the Minute Man monument there in 1875.

The Old Manse

"The Old Manse was built in 1770 for Rev. William Emerson, father of minister Rev. William Emerson and grandfather of transcendentalist writer and lecturer Ralph Waldo Emerson. The elder Emerson was the town minister in Concord, chaplain to the Provincial Congress when it met at Concord in October 1774 and later a chaplain to the Continental Army. Rev. Emerson observed the fight at the North Bridge, a part of the Concord Fight, from his farm fields while his wife and children witnessed the fight from the upstairs windows of their house.

Rev. Emerson died in October 1775 in West Rutland, Vermont, while returning home from Fort Ticonderoga. His widow, Phebe Emerson, remarried to the Rev. Ezra Ripley, who succeeded Rev. Emerson as the minister at First Parish Church in Concord. Their family continued to live in the Old Manse. Rev. Ripley served as Concord's town minister for 63 years.

In October 1834, Ralph Waldo Emerson moved to Concord and boarded at the Manse... Read MORE...

The Middlesex Hotel—once located at the corner of Main Street and Monument Square, opposite the Wright Tavern—thrived as a center of county and town life for decades during the nineteenth century. It provided food, drink, and lodging for lawyers, litigants, and witnesses on court days while Concord was still a shire town, and served up meals to the prisoners in the county jail behind what was then the County House and is now the Catholic rectory. Out-of-town attendants of the Middlesex Agricultural Society’s annual fall Cattle Show lodged and dined there. Workers in the shops on Concord’s Mill Dam stopped in for a quick drink during their day. The hotel accommodated large dinners and dances, including the lavish military balls of the Concord Artillery, and a local dancing school held sessions there summer and winter. The place offered rest and refreshment to teamsters hauling loads over long distances, and food and drink (paid for by the Town of Concord) to... Read MORE...

School of Philosophy, 1907

The Concord School of Philosophy was a lyceum-like series of summer lectures and discussions of philosophy in Concord, Massachusetts from 1879 to 1888.

Starting the Concord School of Philosophy had long been a goal of founder Amos Bronson Alcott and others in the Transcendental movement. He and Franklin Benjamin Sanborn composed a prospectus for the school on January 19, 1879, which was sent to potentially interested people throughout the country.

The school opened in the summer of 1879; its first meeting was held in the study of the Alcott family home, Orchard House. A new home for the School was built for use the next summer with the financial support of William Torrey Harris and of his daughter Louisa May Alcott... wikipedia

The Alcott House

"Orchard House is a historic house museum in Concord, Massachusetts, USA. It was the longtime home of Amos Bronson Alcott (1799–1888) and his family, including his daughter Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) who wrote and set her novel Little Women (1868–69) there.

The Alcotts had first moved to Concord in 1840, although they left in 1843 to start Fruitlands, a utopian agrarian commune in nearby Harvard. The family returned in 1845 and purchased a house named "Hillside", but left again in 1852, selling to Nathaniel Hawthorne who renamed it The Wayside.

The Alcotts returned to Concord once again in 1857. They moved into Orchard House, which was then two-story clapboard farmhouse, in the spring of 1858. At the time of purchase the site included two early eighteenth-century houses on a 12-acre apple orchard. Consequently, the Alcotts named it Orchard House. "'Tis a pretty retreat", Bronson Alcott wrote soon after moving in, "and ours; a family mansion to take pride... Read MORE...

The "Minute Man"

Sculpted by Daniel Chester French, the base is inscribed with the lines of Emerson's poem.

In Concord, at the Old North Bridge within the Minuteman National Historic Park, are several monuments related to the skirmish around the bridge on April 19, 1775. The most notable memorial is the one with a sculpture of a minuteman.

The Minuteman Monument

The monument is made of bronze on a stone base. The bronze sculpture is of a farmer with a gun, leaving his plough behind to join the battle that he heard. The base has inscriptions on it. The front inscription is a verse of a poem by Ralph Emerson:

"By the rude bridge
that arched the flood,
Their flag to April's
breeze unfurled.
Here once the embattled
farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard
round the world."

On the backside, the stone has been etched to create the text:

1775 - American Revolution
First battle of American Revolution fought at Lexington and Concord

The Battles of Lexington and Concord signaled the start of the American Revolutionary war on April 19, 1775. The British Army set out from Boston to capture rebel leaders Samuel Adams and John Hancock in Lexington as well as to destroy the Americans store of weapons and ammunition in Concord. The colonists were warned however, by riders including Paul Revere, that the British Army was approaching. Sam Adams and John Hancock were able to escape and the local militia was able to hide much of their ammunition and weapons.

The Battle of Lexington was a very small fight... Neither side expected to actually fight, but in the midst of the confusion a gunshot went off forcing the British to attack. Some of the colonists were killed and the rest fled.

The gunshot was the first shot of the American Revolution and the start of the war. It was called the "shot heard around the world" by Ralph Waldo Emerson in his poem ... Read MORE...

Concord, Massachusetts
One of the chief towns of Middlesex county. This town is situated on the river of the same name, 17 miles W.N.W. from Boston, 14 S.S.W. from Lowell, and 30 E.N.E. from Worcester. Incorporated, 1635. Population, 1820, 1,788; 1837, 2,023. This town was the first inland settlement in the colony of Massachusetts Bay. The township was originally six miles square, and derives its name from the harmony with which it was purchased of the natives. Its Indian title was Musketaquid. It took an active part in the prosecution of the war against king Philip, in 1675-6, and in April of the latter year, 10 or 12 of its citizens were killed, in the attack made by the Indians on the neighboring town of Sudbury. The general court has frequently held its sessions in this town, and in the year 1774 the provincial congress selected it as their place of meeting. On the 19th of April, 1775, a detachment of British troops, sent out by Gen. Gage for the purpose of seizing a quantity of... Read MORE...

1845 - CONCORD. [Pop. 1,784. Inc 1635.]
The Indian tract called Musketaquid was peacefully purchased of the Indians, and, from this circumstance, called Concord.

Concord originally included the towns of Acton, Carlisle, and part of Bedford.

The county courts meeting alternately at Concord and Cambridge, these are generally called Half-Shire-Towns.

Assabeth and Sudbury rivers unite in this town, and form Concord River, which flows northwardly into the Merrimack.

As the British forces and the Royal Governor were stationed at Boston, just before the Revolution, the Provincial Congress, as the Representatives of the people were called, sometimes held its sessions in Concord, and the public military stores and provisions were deposited here.

To destroy the stores the British went in boats from Boston to Cambridge, and thence marched through Lexington to Concord, April 19, 1775 ; but their object was in a great measure defeated.

A monument is erected on the spot where the first... Read MORE...

In the year 1635, Musketaquid was purchased of the Indians, and called Concord, on account of the peaceable manner in which it was obtained, as appears by the testimony of two settlers, William Buttrick and Richard Rice, and two Christian Indians of Natick, Jehojakin and Jethro. They unitedly testify and say, "That they were present at the making of the bargain for the town of Concord; that at the house of the Rev. Peter Bulkley, Mr. Simon Willard, Mr. John Jones, Mr. Spencer, and others, did purchase of squaw sachem, Tahattawan and Nimrod, a tract of land six miles square, the center being the place (or near) where the bargain was made. That said Willard and others did pay for said land in wampanpeague, hatchets, hoes, knives, cotton cloth, and chintz, to said Indians. And that Wappacowet, husband to squaw sachem, received a suit of cotton cloth, a hat, a white linen band, shoes, stockings, and a great coat on account of said bargain.

From the Boston Traveller, July 24.

The homestead occupied by Mr. Ralph Waldo Emerson, in Concord, was entirely destroyed by fire this morning, the walls of the first story and the outbuildings only being left standing. Fire was discovered in the roof at about 6½ o'clock by a workman in Mr. Emerson's employ, and an alarm speedily brought the two hand-engines of the town to the spot, too late, however, to be of material service. It is presumed that the attic caught fire yesterday morning from a defective flue, and that the flames had been smouldering[sic] ever since. The furniture of the house, fortunately, was saved, as was also the valuable library which was in Mr. Emerson's possession, except one trunk containing manuscripts. The house was situated near the centre of Concord and was a point of much interest to visitors. It was filled, as might be expected from its owner, with choice articles of vertu, the gifts of friends and the collections of many years, and a library of great ... Read MORE...

Concord is bounded on the north by Carlisle, on the northeast by Bedford, on the southeast by Lincoln, on the southwest by Sudbury, and on the west and northwest by Acton."It is one of the quiet country towns," says Mr. Alcott, "whose charm is incredible to all but those who, by loving it, have found it worthy of love."
