Built around 1692, the Samuel Brooks house in Lincoln, Mass., was a witness house to the battles of Lexington and Concord leading up to the Revolutionary War. It is on the Battle Unit road in Minuteman National Historical Park.
A large and gorgeous property, the home is not open to the public, But you can traipse around the home, and trust me, there are lots of things to sniff. There are also ticks in the tall grasses, so try to stick to the surrounding paths if you can.
Three other Brooks family homes are located nearby. For more information, visit the National Park Planner website.
