Buckman Tavern is located on Lexington Common, across from the Minute Man statue on the Battle Green. Built circa 1710, several dozen minutemen gathered in the Tavern during the early hours
of the morning on April 19, 1775, to await the arrival of the British forces. The Lexington Historical Society operates Buckman Tavern and provides guided tours during the spring, summer and fall. 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.
