Most people know Concord as the birthplace of the American Revolutionary War, a spot the British marched on when they left Boston to quell those pesky Minutemen. The town is proud of its history, and Wright's Tavern, where the British refreshed themselves on that fateful day, still stands.
We had brunch recently at the Colonial Inn, another landmark dating from 1716, found in the center of Concord.
But Concord is also home to many famous American writers. Louisa May Alcott was one. Here's her home (Orchard House), which is now a museum.
The Wayside is another Concord museum which was, in turn, a home for the Alcotts, Hawthorne and Margaret Sidney, who wrote the Five Little Peppers series. Has anyone but me read them?
Doris Kearns Goodwin lives in Concord today, as do other contemporary writers.
The brunch was delish!
