This is a wonderful location for wedding or special event. The staff are customer-friendly and the location is easily accessible. The only downside is parking - heck, it's Arlington!

Fascinating place. The tour gives great insights into the horror of the Battle of Lexington and Concord. Fighting inside the home; bullet holes can still be seen on the walls.

This house has changed very little in 200+ years. There are bullet holes that remind a visitor of the running battle that took place as the British soldiers retreated to Boston.
