The interior of Buckman Tavern appears today very much as it did on that fateful morning in 1775, having been restored in the 1920s by the Lexington Historical Society. During this restoration, the original taproom fireplace was rediscovered and the bar was reinstalled.
Among the many items on display is the old front door, with its bullet hole made by a British musket ball during the Battle, and a portrait of John Buckman, the proprietor of the tavern in 1775.
*For an additional $7/adults and $3/children, payable directly to the Lexington Historical Society, Go Boston Card holders can receive a ticket to both the Hancock-Clark House and Munroe Tavern.
Tickets to the other two historic homes will be provided upon entry to the Buckman Tavern. Your Go Boston Card will not need to be scanned at the other two homes since the tickets will allow you entry.

Comments about Smart Destinations Lexington: Buckman Tavern:
This spot was the official gathering place of the men who left their wives and children for the battle that was about to take place. You can imagine the brave men sitting in the small tavern awaiting their fate. The property has been aptly restored. It gives you chills.
