Park staff, joined by the Lexington Train Band (militia) and HM 10th Regiment of Foot will celebrate the rich history of the Town of Lexington with drill and musket firing demonstrations, family activities in the house, and tours of the Parker's Revenge battle site just yards away. This event is a part of the Town of Lexington's 300th Anniversary Celebration. For more information, visit http://www.lexington300.org/
