Lexington Historical Society is happy to announce we will be able to open Buckman Tavern on a limited basis with a hybrid outdoor/indoor guided tour! During the tour, participants will gather outside with a Lexington Historical Society guide to learn the history of Buckman Tavern and the role it played in the Battle of Lexington. After this brief chat, visitors will be guided through the historic 1710 tavern and be able to view the period rooms that up until this point have been closed to visitors since March 2020. Visitors will have time to view artifacts and ask questions of LHS guides during this abbreviated tour of the interior of Buckman Tavern.
During the tour, all social distancing practices and mandated Massachusetts State Regulations and Requirements will be observed. Please remember to stay the length of a British Grenadier (6 feet) away from other visitors and to always wear your mask so that we can keep both our visitors and staff as safe as we can.
Hybrid tours of Buckman Tavern will begin on Saturday October 3 and will be offered daily through Thanksgiving from 10 AM – 2:30 PM every 45 minutes. Online reservations are recommended and will be available for booking starting on October 1.
