Welcome to Lexington

Lexington is a suburban community located 11 miles northwest of Boston. First settled in 1642 the town has grown to encompass 16.64 square miles with a population of approximately 30000. 

The Town was named after Lord Lexington an English nobleman. The first battle of the American Revolution was fought in Lexington on April 19 1775 and the Town is now referred to as the "birthplace of American liberty". The historic setting of the Battle Green and the number of colonial era buildings and exhibits annually draw thousands of visitors. The Battle of Lexington is re-enacted early in the morning of Patriot’s Day.  Settlement originally occurred on the best farmland.

Construction of a railroad connection to Boston in the 1850s began Lexington's evolution from an agricultural community to a bedroom suburb within the Boston urban area.  Construction of state highways and expressways has reinforced Lexington's role as a desirable residential suburb. In the post-World War II era suburban office park development particularly of "high-technology" firms has provided a diversified commercial and employment base within the town. 

Lexington is a community that prides itself on the beauty of Town land the safety of its residents and the excellence of its public school system. Numerous parks conservation lands museums and libraries provide exceptional opportunities for recreational and cultural activities. 

Today the Minuteman Bikeway connects Bedford Lexington Arlington and Cambridge using the old railroad right-of-way. The town's physical location allows easy access to Boston the Atlantic Ocean the White Mountains and many important historical sites in New England.
