Saturday November 26: Minute Man National Historic Park
On Saturday we took a family field trip to Concord and the Minute Man National Historical Park. We got a late start so didn’t see all of the park. Basically we went to the visitor center near the North Bridge, watched a film and listened to an interpreter there, then walked down to the bridge. Then we ambled down the path to the Manse, where Hawthorne and Thoreau once lived, but we didn’t take the tour, just gobbled some free cookies and cider. Then we went and had a late lunch.
