About Lexington

Lexington, Massachusetts, is the birthplace of American Liberty. Located 11 miles northwest of Boston, the American Revolution began on the Lexington Battle Green on April 19, 1775. The annual Patriots Day celebration in mid-April commemorating the historic events of the Battle of Lexington provides a window on history with the re-enactment of Paul Revere's ride and the Lexington Minute Men confrontation with the British.

First settled in 1642, Lexington has grown to encompass 16.64 square miles with a population just over 30,000. Lexington prides itself on its important place in American history, the beauty of town open space, and the excellence of its public school system. The Town has numerous parks, conservation lands, museums, and libraries that provide exceptional opportunities for recreational and cultural activities. The Town's physical location allows easy access to Boston, the Atlantic Ocean, the White Mountains, and many important historical sites in the State.

Year-round, Lexington invites visitors to enjoy our historic sites and attractions, such as the Battle Green, National Heritage Museum, and Minute Man National Historical Park. Three Colonial homes are open seasonally. Guided tours can be arranged throughout the year.
