More About Lexington, Massachusetts
The first settlement in Lexington, MA, was in 1641. It started out as a farming community and a part of Cambridge, Massachusetts. In 1691, It was incorporated as a parish and initially called Cambridge Farms. Lexington was commissioned in 1713 as an individual town. It is a historical town where the battle of Lexington and Concord took place.
The first battle of the American revolutionary war, known as the Battle at Lexington, started in Lexington on the 19th of April 1775. The British Army set out to destroy colonial gunpowder and cannons that were being stored in Concord; the British faced the minutemen of the Lexington militia. The war broke out when a shot was fired, and till today, Lexington recognizes and commemorates this battle on the Battle Green as part of its Patriots day.
After the revolutionary war, Lexington developed while it remained a farming community supplying produce and offering services to neighboring suburbs in Massachusetts. As the town progressed, many of the farms were converted to housing divisions in the 1970s. In the 1960s and 70s, more people began to move to Lexington because of its progression in technology and proximity to Boston.
