The Old North Bridge

The North Bridge is a recent restoration of the last bridge built on the site in 1956. The bridge that was there during the battle of 1775 was taken down in 1788. There have been 5 restorations since then.

Have you visited the Grave of the British Soldiers? There are two soldiers buried in this grave. British military records show that there were three soldiers missing and presumed dead after the North Bridge fight: James Hall, Thomas Smith, and Patrick Gray. One is buried in Concord Center and the other two are buried here.

There is a great ranger program here and you can schedule guided tours. Three popular programs are “The Road to Revolution”,  “Some Were for Making a Stand”, and “The Minute Men: Neighbors in Arms”. Be sure to stop in the North Bridge Visitor Center.

Nice scenic walk amongst well kept grounds. It was a good way to enjoy some historical perspective. Plenty of open space for picnics.

Beautiful place to walk early morning. Social distancing is respected. Peaceful. Snappers are nesting so keep your eyes open and avoid these ladies as they wander the property.

Always a nice walk and history lesson. We saw a big beaver swimming in the Concord River too!

Such as nice scenic view. Plenty of path width so people can walk comfortably during the pandemic.

A very typical visitor center, the typical small gift shop, small room with some historical items, and a room that runs a video talking about the history of the location. Only thing that really stood out to me were the gorgeous gardens behind the visitor center. They are perfectly maintained and have all kinds of trees, flowers, and shrubs. For sure worth checking out. This is a great visitor center for all ages! I think adults would for sure enjoy the gift shop and garden while kids can enjoy the history video and look at the amazing history section as well.

Friendly and knowledgeable volunteers and guides made for a pleasant visit. Short movie gave historical context and the grounds were beautiful.
