Today Shadow, Wilma, and I Adventured to The Old Manse in Concord, Massachusetts. The Old Manse is a historic manse famous for its history and literacy associations. Writers Ralph Waldo Emerson and Nathaniel Hawthorne both lived in this property at one point in their lives. The Trustees of Reservations runs The Old Manse which is now a museum that offers Tours and houses a bookstore. The Old Manse neighbors the Minute Man National Historic Park, and is a National Historic Landmark.
We had a humid Adventure to The Old Manse after a rainy morning. We were inspired by The Trustees of Reservations, and decided to visit The Old Manse to take some photographs. We have been to this area before, but choose to concentrate on The Old Manse, its history, and the grounds. Parking was available right in front of the building, which was quite convenient. We headed directly to this scenic structure, soon being greeted by an information board about the property. From there we strolled past and around The Old Manse. It was exciting to see some spring blooms, a recent and jovial sight for us New Englanders! The Old Manse, and area surrounding is very picturesque. There are beautiful stone walls, gorgeous landscaping, and other landmarks in site. Wilma hopped on several rocks, Shadow enjoyed a dip in the River, and both pups enjoyed some cheerful rolls in the grass. Often we found ourselves wandered aimlessly in attempt to notice all the little details. We were pleased to visit The Old Manse today (Rating: 3).

I’ve bookmarked this for a day trip for my husband and me.
That would be a great idea! Check out the Minuteman National Historic blog for more information in the area, actually right next door!
