Other historic structures you can go inside include the Buckman Tavern and the Munroe Tavern, both wartime meeting places. The latter was taken over by the British on the afternoon of April 19, 1775, according to the Lexington Historical Society.
For a non-war related activity, you can go to Wilson Farm, which has been in operation since 1884. The original owners were Irish immigrants who took their produce into Boston to sell at Quincy Market.
