Three days before the Boston Tea Party in 1773, citizens of Lexington burned all their tea in a common bonfire, and issued a stirring resolution supporting the people of Boston, announcing that anyone in town who used tea would be treated “as an enemy of this town and this country.”

Lexington Historical Society and the Lexington Minute Men invite all to the Lexington Tea Burning. The event will take place on the grounds of another sponsor of the event, the Lexington Visitor’s Center (1875 Massachusetts Avenue) and will begin at 10AM with an 18th century soldier encampment, followed by musket drills, 18th century cooking demonstrations, parades, and music, and culminate with the burning of the tea at 1:30PM.

Historic Buckman Tavern will be decorated for the holidays and open for FREE tours.
