Old North Bridge

The commemorative landscape around North Bridge includes “two lines of trees that formalize the approach from Monument Street,” as well as monuments and markers memorializing the events that occurred here on April 19, 1775. The Obelisk monument was dedicated in 1837. The Minute Man Statue was dedicated during the centennial on April 19, 1875. Also at this site is a commemorative Grave of British Soldiers. The Minute Man Statue was the first commission of Daniel Chester French, a Concord native who went on to sculpt more famous works, most notably the seated Lincoln statue at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C.
