Tours include information about Jason Russell and his family, who continued to live in the house he built until the 1890s. Learn about the history of the house and hear about its role in the momentous events of April 19, 1775, when the retreating British clashed with local Minuteman in the Battle of Menotomy and the Jason Russell House was the scene of some of the deadliest fighting of the day. A corresponding exhibit, Menotomy: Road to Revolution, tells the stories of other Menotomy (as Arlington was then known) residents as they defended their homes and village from the retreating British troops.


Membership is open to those who are interested in the objectives of the Society. See the Membership Page for additional details.
