Renowned as the site of one of the first battles of the American Revolution and the home of great American writers and thinkers, including Emerson and Thoreau, Concord has long been a popular destination. The Museum is a center for cultural enjoyment for the region and a gateway to the town of Concord for visitors from around the world. The collection includes American icons such as Paul Revere's lantern; the contents of Henry David Thoreau's cabin at Walden Pond; major Revolutionary War holdings; and exceptionally well-documented furniture, clocks, silver, ceramics, textiles and other artifacts.
