Concord, Massachusetts has a long, rich American history. It is known as the site for the first battle in the American Revolution but also as a cultural center for early America. Concord was the home of writers Henry Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Louisa May Alcott. The Concord Museum is therefore a celebration of Concord’s relevance in both our freedom and our cultural growth with artifacts from New England’s vital place in our history. There is an exhibit on the city itself and its prominence in history, historical artifacts like the lantern from the famous words, “one if by land, and two if by sea”, weapons from the American revolution, and memorabilia from Concord’s famous writers. This is a fascinating American city and the Concord Museum is the perfect way to experience it.
