On that evening, legendary patriots John Hancock and Samuel Adams were guests of Reverend Clarke. Joseph Warren of Boston sent Revere and Dawes to the Hancock Clarke House to warn them and avert their possible capture by the British.
Today, the house contains furnishings and portraits owned by the Hancock and Clarke families and features a new film describing important facts from that first battle of the Revolution.
*Admission to the Hancock Clarke House includes admission to Buckman Tavern and Munroe Tavern (a $15 value).
Tickets to the other two historic homes will be provided upon entry to the Hancock Clarke House. 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: Hancock Clarke House:
Revolutionary heroes like Sam Adams and John Hancock stayed here in anticipation of the Battle of Lexington. Then Paul Revere stopped by to warn that the British were coming! Incredibly historic. Actually all 3 of the featured Lexington homes are. A must see for history buffs.
