patriot's day open house at the old manse photoIn celebrating the famed Battle at the Old North Bridge, everyone is invited to visit The Old Manse first floor free of charge. Donations will be accepted to view the attic and second floor and see where the Emerson family's own 'Battle in the Backyard' took place on April 19, 1775. Grounds open at dawn.

About The Old Manse
The first shots of the Revolutionary War were fired nearby – and, less than a century later, Emerson, Hawthorne, and Thoreau spawned a revolution in American philosophy from here.

What makes the Old Manse a special place?
Built in 1770 for patriot minister William Emerson, The Old Manse, a National Historic Landmark, became the center of Concord’s political, literary, and social revolutions over the course of the next century. In the mid-19th-century, leading Transcendentalists such as Bronson Alcott, Henry David Thoreau, and Margaret Fuller discussed the issues of the day here, with the Hawthorne and Ripley families.
