Halloween is way too much fun for just one night...
Why not celebrate Halloween Eve with Minute Man National Historical Park and the Lexington Historical Society? We invite you and your family to get into the spirit of the season. Come and join us for an evening of fun at Hartwell Tavern in the town of Lincoln, and at Buckman Tavern in Lexington.
There’s plenty of time to enjoy both events at your convenience as both sites are only a 7- minute drive from each other.
Halloween Open House at Hartwell Tavern
5:30 - 9:00 p.m.
Open House: Do you believe in ghosts? Do you like history? Jack o’ Lanterns? Musket firing? Then come visit us at Hartwell Tavern! Walk down a path lined with dozens of jack-o-lanterns. Stroll through the open house and grounds. Talk with rangers and volunteers about ghostly folklore and how people in Colonial New England protected themselves from evil spirits and witches. Visit with our park curator and see real artifacts recovered from colonial houses within the park that reveal a frightening history.
Help Us Decorate! Jack-o-Lanterns Wanted!
If you are interested in contributing a jack-o-lantern for the community art project, you may drop it off at Minute Man Visitor Center (Rt. 2A Lexington) on Friday, October 29 between 9 am and 4 pm, or Saturday, October 30 between 9 am and 2 pm.
