Beautiful photos. Love that library!
We lived in Lincoln and I'd ride my bike to Fenn past most of those sights. Nice to see that much hasn't changed since the fifties and sixties. My brothers went there, too and my sister went to Concord Academy. Some years later she and her husband lived and taught at Middlesex and raised their children there. Thanks for the photos.
Random. I probably know your sister and brother-in-law.
It really is a beautiful town with so much history. I use Concord as a stopping point on the way to and from Maine. First stop Colonial Pizza and Bedford Farms ice cream across the street. Second stop at the Old North Bridge for some history. Third stop let the kids run on the fields on campus. Then get on the road again. It breaks up the drive.
I'm thrilled you chose to highlight Concord today because I will finish a course on Henry David Thoreau next week and his hometown is fresh on my mind. Thoreau is getting extra attention now because it’s the 200th anniversary of his birth and because his ideas on minimalism, self knowledge and living off the land are trending now (I’m “simplifying” but you get what I mean).I also love the house photos. People ask me what I do when I vacation in New England and - while I enjoy many things - my favorite thing is to simply drive around and look at clapboard houses, especially those with picket fences or stone walls. So thank you! (Love that library, too!)
100% guaranteed great time - Ride The Battle Road Bike Path from the Minuteman Visitor Center to the North Bridge Visitor Center and stop at the Colonial Inn for lunch on the way back.
