Fall Season Comes to a Close

The fall season at Minute Man National Historical Park came to a successful close as visitors flocked to the many events offered at the park. Visitors enjoyed beautiful foliage along with old and new events, including “Preparing for Winter, Preparing for War,” “Wayside Halloween,” “Halloween at Hartwell Tavern,” and “Park Day.” Thank you to staff, volunteers, and visitors for making these events a success!

Minute Man National Historical Park is now closed for the season, but the staff is here all winter and is busy planning for next season. We look forward to seeing you again in the spring when the Visitor Centers open and programming resumes.
