Concord in Middlesex County, Massachusetts — The American Northeast (New England)
Major John Buttrick House
Although this house was built in 1715 (and later altered), the Buttrick family lived on this hillside since the founding of Concord in 1635. At the time of the battle in 1775, John was a 44 year old farmer who was well respected in Concord and active in town government. He and his wife Abigail had eight children.
After the battle, the bodies of the two Colonists killed at the bridge, Isaac Davis and Abner Hosmer, were laid out in the house.
