- Map of the town of Concord : Middlesex County Mass., surveyed by authority of the town
Located on the Concord River is The Old Manse. This National Historic Landmark looks over North Bridge, where the first shots of the Revolutionary War were fired on April 19, 1775. Fifty years later, Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote his seminal work Nature here. During his three-year stay, Nathaniel Hawthorne penned Moses from the Manse. This 1852 town map shows the location of The Old Manse and names its owner at the time – Mrs. Sarah Ripley. The house has changed little over the generations. Layers of wallpaper from centuries ago still cling to the plaster walls, and historical ‘graffiti' is scribbled liberally in closets and etched on windows.
