They gathered together with other Concordians to discuss issues of the day such as slavery, war, the natural world, and many other topics. Led by a Museum educator, explore 1800s Concord and discover the impact of the anti-slavery movement and the Civil War, the lives and homes of the famous authors who lived here. 1 mile walk, mostly flat sidewalk or pavement, rain or shine.
