Visit the Fruitlands Museum in Harvard – a short, scenic drive from Concord and Chelmsford. The Fruitlands Museum is a collection of historic buildings and structures – once a site of a proposed utopian community, led by Amos Bronson Alcott. Be sure to tour the Fruitlands Farmhouse, fully restored to resemble how it looked in the 1840s. Any visit into Massachusetts should be met with some time at the Fruitlands Museum.
In 1910, the property was purchased by Clara Endicott Sears. She would later, in 1914, open the farmhouse as a museum for public viewing. Comprising nearly 90 acres, the Fruitlands is named, almost ironically, because of a small batch of apple trees on the grounds. You'll have a wide range of historic landmarks to check out on your next trip into MA – be sure to visit the Fruitlands Museum.
Plan out your next trip to Massachusetts and head for the Louisa May Alcott Orchard House. A popular attraction in Concord, the Louisa May Alcott Orchard House is well known as the setting for the classic novel, Little Women. Louisa May Alcott, the author of Little Women, is said to have written the novel in the orchard house.
Your tour of Massachusetts won't be complete until you enjoy some time at the Louisa May Alcott Orchard House. Tours are guided and available almost year round – not counting Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years day. Drive in from nearby Chelmsford for an exciting day trip and tour – an ideal destination for fans of Little Women.
Massachusetts and iconic cities like Concord, Boston, and Plymouth are home to an array of impressive and noted historic monuments. When you visit Concord, be sure to explore the Minute Man National Historical Park. Not far north from the Louisa May Alcott Orchard House – two more historic sites – the Minute Man National Historical Park commemorates the opening of the American Revolutionary War.
The Old North Bridge is a popular destination for American History buffs and is a part of the Minute Man National Historical Park. Be sure to find the Minute Man statue, which is adjacent to the North Bridge. Another highlight of the Minute Man National Historical Park is the Memorial obelisk, also adjacent to the North Bridge. You can also tour The Wayside, a historic house on the park grounds.
Bundle Up and Visit Nashoba Valley Ski Area
Since 1964, skiers in northeast Massachusetts have enjoyed winter-time fun in Westford, at a wonderful ski area. The Nashoba Valley Ski Area, located northwest of Concord, offers fun not only in the winter, but the summer too. During the winter, the resort features seventeen trails accessible by three triple chairs, one double chair, two conveyers and three tow ropes. The terrain park includes rails, jumps and boxes, ready for snowboarding action. The resort's snowtubing park is the largest in the New England area, with more than 600 snowtubes flying down sixteen lanes.
The resort provides private and group lessons, in addition to a variety of programs. Take a break and satisfy your appetite in The Outlook Restaurant, at the base of the resort. Summer-time fun includes day camps, festivals and delicious drinks and food at the Sunset Tiki Bar. Nighttime fun includes the Nightmare Mansion, Castle Morbid and Witch's Woods Haunted Hayrides. Get ready for a howling good time. At the end of a great day, check into a nearby Best Western and enjoy a wonderful night's rest.
There are many historic and iconic landmarks all across Massachusetts, each unique and impressive in their own way. When you visit Concord, be sure to check out the Old North Bridge. Found at the Concord Battleground, just north of downtown Concord, the Old North Bridge played a role in the American War of Independence.
In 1793, the bridge was dismantled. New versions of the bridge were constructed in 1875, 1889, and 1909. As it stands today, the bridge is a replica of the original built in 1956 and restored in 2005. The Old North Bridge crosses the Concord River near the confluence of the Sudbury River and the Assabet River.
Adjacent to the Concord Museum, the Ralph Waldo Emerson House operates as a museum from April through October, closing for the winter months. The Ralph Waldo Emerson House is a National Historic Landmark, making it an ideal destination on your next visit to Massachusetts and Concord. The house is two stories, with a classic four-square design.
Built in 1828 and nicknamed "Coolidge Castle," Emerson moved into the house in 1935 when he married Lydia Jackson. On your tour of the Ralph Waldo Emerson House, you'll have the privilege of seeing the furnishing as they were when Emerson, himself, lived in the house. However, much of his personal book collection is now on display at the Concord Museum.
Head for Bedford Street close to the center of Concord and check out the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery. Not to be confused with the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in New York, Concord, MA's Sleepy Hollow Cemetery is home to "Author's Ridge," a location within the cemetery featuring the burial site of a long list of legendary and iconic American authors. Sleepy Hollow Cemetery was established in 1855.
While cemeteries aren't typically a major tourism draw, it's interesting to note at Sleepy Hollow's dedication in 1855, the dedication speech was given by Ralph Waldo Emerson, who would find himself buried at the very same cemetery years later. Other notable Concordians to call Sleepy Hollow their final resting place are Louisa May Alcott, author of Little Women, Nathaniel Hawthorne, author of The Scarlet Letter, and Daniel Chester French, sculptor of the Lincoln Memorial.
Built in the Colonial style, The Wayside is a historic house in Concord. On your next visit to Massachusetts, plan some time to visit The Wayside and enjoy a self-guided tour. The Wayside has the distinction of housing, at separate times, Louisa May Alcott (author of Little Women) and her family, Nathaniel Hawthorne (author of The Scarlet Letter) and his family, and Margaret Sidney, noted children's book author.
Dating back to as far as 1717 when Minuteman Samuel Whitney was living in the house, the history of The Wayside is vast and rich. In 1962 it was designated as a National Historic Landmark, and in 1980 it was added to the National Register of Historic Places. There's a wide breadth of historic and iconic landmarks to visit while in Concord – make sure The Wayside is one of them.
Make plans to visit Massachusetts and head for Concord, home of the popular Walden Pond. Somewhat famously, Walden Pond's northern shore was the home of writer Henry David Thoreau from 1845-1847 – his experiences were converted into a book titled, "Walden; or, Life in the Woods." The publishing of that book seemingly placed Walden on the figurative map.
With a surface area of 61 acres, Walden Pond is a popular summer destination for aquatic adventures in MA – locals from nearby Waltham and Chelmsford make frequent trips. A visit to the Concord Museum yields access to some select furnishings from the cabin where Thoreau lived. You can visit the Thoreau cabin replica on your visit to Walden Pond.
