Munroe Tavern

A $7.00 value - Included with your Go Boston Card!

On the afternoon of April 19, 1775, the first wave of British troops beat a hasty retreat from Concord back into Lexington, where they were rescued by General Percy's reinforcements at Munroe Tavern. A field hospital was set up there, turning the tide of the battle for the day. Today, the beautifully landscaped grounds preserve a legacy of those days with Colonial-era flowers, while a bullet hole in the ceiling of the tap room is a reminder of the violent battle that gave this place its historic legacy. Adding to that legacy is President Washington's 1789 visit (and he did, in fact, eat here).
This attraction is seasonal and may be closed during your visit. Please verify this attraction's closings below.
