The Old Manse, a National Historic Landmark located in Concord, Massachusetts. One of Concord’s most famous old houses.
Built in 1770 by Reverend William Emerson, the house was relatively new when, on the morning of April 19, 1775, British redcoats marched past it and across the famous North Bridge on their way to Colonel Barrett’s farm. The British soldiers were looking to destroy colonial militia arms caches.
The first official military conflict of the American Revolution erupted about a half a mile away from the Old Manse on the North Bridge. The bridge can be seen from the house’s top floors.
