Built in 1740, the Jason Russell House in Arlington, Mass., was a fighting site on the first day of the Revolutionary War in 1775. The structure still has bullet holes from the battle.
Operated by the Arlington Historical Society, it now functions as a museum, showcasing the Society’s artifacts, manuscripts and other Arlington memorabilia. Items from the Russell family, who lived there until 1896, are also housed there.
The Arlington Garden Club maintains an herb garden on the property, and the AHS built an additional adjoining space to add to their exhibit space.
