A visit to the Concord Museum

The Concord Museum
200 Lexington Road
Concord, Massachusetts

A clock made in Concord by Daniel Munroe, case by his brother William Munroe
See my blog post last week for the special exhibit on William Munroe furniture

There is special exhibit on Daniel Chester French until March 23, 2014
He sculpted the Concord Minuteman, and the Lincoln Memorial Statue.

This is one of the two lanterns hung in the Old North Church in Boston
to signal "One if land, Two if by Sea" for Paul Revere

The Concord Museum is across the street from Ralph Waldo Emerson's House
In the 1930s his study was moved to the museum, since the house suffered several fires.

The museum if full of lots of Revolutionary War artifacts, as well as 
interesting exhibits from all time periods in Concord history.
