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. The grounds are open year-round, daily, sunrise to sunset. A short network of footpaths connects the Old Manse to the North Bridge and boathouse on the Concord River. Easy walking. Please visit our website for more information on tours and programming.
