For generations, Lexingtonians have been proud stewards of the Birthplace of American Liberty, sharing the significance of the events that took place on the Battle Green in 1775 with the world.

In April 2018, Town Meeting voted to replace the obsolete Visitors Center:

  • built almost 50 years ago to welcome visitors to the Bicentennial
  • open 362 days a year
  • Attracts tourists, who contributes directly to hotel and meals tax revenues, and to the vitality of our retail businesses, restaurants, and hotels.
  • the only venue for thousands of guests who visit Lexington during the winter months.

The 250th anniversary of the Battle of Lexington will take place in 2025. The new Visitors Center will be an inviting, inclusive and accessible modern facility which will inform visitors and residents with a wide range of interests where to spend their time — and money — while lingering in Lexington.

Your gift to the Visitor Center project will help continue our legacy and give Lexington a welcoming center that reflects proudly on the excellence of our Town
