Come Learn and Play in Historic Concord Massachusetts

Concord is a charming town located northwest of Boston in the history rich state of Massachusetts. The town, originally known as Musketaquid, dates back to 1635 but it was on April 19, 1775 that the town experienced an event that will forever live in the history books. It was on that day that American revolutionaries began battle against the British troops who came to Concord to destroy military stores and equipment. It was “The Shot Heard Round the World” and the beginning to our first ever Revolutionary War.

Concord’s history is more than just the location of our first revolutionary war. It is also rich in literary history as the town was home to several influential writers such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, a successful lecturer and philosopher, known for leading the Transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century. Other notable literary leaders include Bronson Alcott and his daughter Louisa May Alcott, Nathaniel Hawthorne and Henry David Thoreau. Each made significant contributions to our literary history and subsequent growth.

With a vast number of notable residents and history, this town offers a multitude of activities geared to get families learning and experiencing all the town has to offer.
