Munroe Tavern was built in 1735 and temporarily served as a field hospital for the British Army on their retreat back to Boston from Concord on April 19, 1775. Later in 1789, George Washington paid a visit to the Tavern and dined in one of the rooms.

One of my wife's ancestor was a Munroe so the Tavern was of great interest. We enjoyed the artifacts, the video, and the comments of the guide. Glad we went.More

If you have a package ticket, by all means go see it. If not, don't spend the money. Hancock-Clarke house was a much better visit.

Joined a tour of this historic Tavern with an 18th century costumed docent on Saturday, May 27th. He was very well informed & enjoyable. We enjoyed visiting this site. Tour lasted about 30 minutes.
