Buckman Tavern Tours

Although it dates back to the early 18th-century, the Buckman Tavern secured its place in the history books during the American Revolutionary War, as a popular meeting place of the Lexington Minutemen. Its most significant moment came on April 19th 1775, when the militia gathered at the tavern to await the oncoming British troops - what would later be known as the Battle of Lexington and Concord, notorious as the starting point of the American War of Independence. 

Today, the Buckman Tavern is preserved as a National Historic Landmark and museum, where visitors can learn all about its long history, and view original fittings, including a portrait of proprietor John Buckman and the old front door, complete with a bullet hole made during the infamous battle. 

Practical Info

The Buckman Tavern is located on Bedford Street in Lexington and is open from March-November, daily from 10am-4pm. Adult admission at the time of writing is $8.
