Lonely Planet review

The grassy center of Monument Sq is a favorite resting and picnicking spot for cyclists touring Concord's scenic roads. At the southeastern end of the square is Wright Tavern , one of the first places the British troops searched in their hunt for arms on April 19, 1775. It became their headquarters for the operation.

Old Hill Burying Ground , with graves dating from colonial times, is on the hillside at the southeastern end of Monument Sq.
