Today is Independence Day in the United States. Since it falls on a Thursday, my employer closed for the weekend as of yesterday at noon. Long weekend here we come!
In honor of this day, I thought it would be appropriate to share some of the remaining doors from Concord, Massachusetts – where our battle for independence began.
Thursday Doors is a weekly celebration of everything that hangs on a hinge. It’s brought to us by the wonderfully benevolent, creative and talented Norm Frampton. If you want to join the celebration, head on up to Norm’s place and follow his instructions. If you don’t have doors to share, but like looking at doors, head on up to Norm’s place, because he has doors-a-plenty.
Coan Coachman house, Just outside the center of Concord.
Other than the fact that it’s the Coan Coachman house, I wasn’t able to find much about this home.
This home has been repurposed as an art gallery.
Just outside of Monument Square sits this lovely old stone house.
This house sits in front of the historic cemetery in Concord.
This church overlooks Monument Square.
Quite an impressive church.
I like the side lights and the transom light.
I wish I knew the history of the house in the back. I’m guessing it isn’t original.
A lot of these homes have one or more additions. These were often used to house the mechanical systems that weren’t available wen the historic house was built.
The home of Johnathan Fiske (Prior to 1724).

I think I like the fence better than the door.
This is an interesting house. I wonder if friends used the side door (like on many houses around here).
The Art Gallery
Johnathan Prescott – 1720
Thomas Dane “may have” built this house before 1657.
Another beautiful home on the Lexington Road into Concord.
