This is a must visit place in Lexington. First you will view a video that is very informative and then you will go on a guided with a docent in period clothing. The docent had amazing knowledge to share. The house is original and has many original furnishings. You can feel yourself transporting back in time and immersing in the history of this place. What you learn here, they do not teach in the classroom and you are not going to find in a textbook. Do yourself a favor and visit

Nancy was awesome. Besides being knowledgeable, she was very excited about the information she was giving us. We learned a great deal about John Hancock and family, as well as the battle with background.

This house along with Buckman Tavern and Munroe Tavern are owned by the Lexington Historical Society. Each cost $10,00 or you can visit all three for $20.00. The Hancock-Clarke House is the only one with a guided tour. We took the first tour which was at 10 o'clock. First there was a short video and then the guided tour -- an hour to do both. Rick did a great job telling us about the hour and the people who lived and visited there.

The first inhabitant was Reverend John Hancock who lived there for 54 years. He was the grandfather of the John Hancock who signed the Declaration of Independence. Young John Hancock moved into this house at age seven after his father had died. The next minister, Reverend Jonas Clark, lived in the house for 50 years. (Only two ministers in 104 years!) Jonas Clark married John Hancock's cousin. John Hancock and Sam Adams were staying at John's cousin's and her husband Reverend Clark's house the night of April 18, 1775, when Paul Revere and William Dawes both arrived separately to warn them that "The British Were Coming".

This house is located about 1/4 mile from the Green. There is parking behind the house. We enjoyed all three museums, but it your time is limited, I would suggest that you do this one. There is a rest room there.

Paul Revere rode to John Hancock's house to warn that "the Regulars are out"
Paul Revere came to this house, where John Hancock and Sam Adams were staying while meeting with other American Revolutionaries, on his famous Midnight Ride to warn them that the British troops were coming to arrest them. Because of original pieces being exhibited in the house, one can go through the place only on a guided tour. The 45-minute tour is very informative and adds much to our understanding of the lives of people living through that period of American history. Buy a combined ticket to visit the Buckman Tavern and Munroe Tavern in addition to the Hancock-Clarke House if you have the time.

Great guided tour
Lots of original things from both families, even a waistcoat of John Hancock's. The tea table where Hancock, Clark and Adams took tea is still there with a plaque. The furnishings are lovely.

A wonderful glance into American history. The Hancock-Clark House is right off the Lexington Green where the American Revolution started.This is the house that Paul Revere rode to on April 19th to warn that the British were coming! The docent who gave us a fabulous tour was a retired teacher, named John. He was full of history facts and delivered his message with great humor. This tour is a must. If you have time and love the history of the American Revolution, take time to see both Lexington and Concord. Your kids would learn alot about our history. Enjoy your time here!

One of the few houses of the era where things are mostly original & are set up like the occupants of the period had them in the day. Having an actual person giving a narrated tour makes all the difference. Highly recommend taking an hour or so & doing this. It was the best historical house we checked out while in the area.

When you pay for your tour of this house I believe it's 2 more that come with your ticket. The tavern right down the street in the common is one of them. Also a neat place but the lack of a human-based narrated tour there makes this house much more interesting.

Excellent tour - wonderful guide

So happy we came to Lexington and Concord to visit the historical sites. They have so many wonderful houses here that were probably some of the best sites we visited on our whole 11 day vacation.

We followed the suggestions we found online about visiting all the different sites in order in Lexington. This was the first one after breakfast. There were just the two of us but the guide did an exceptional job of sharing her love of history, Lexington, and the families who lived in the house.

Even though we heard many of the stories in the past few days of visiting Boston, she broadened the information and we were able to understand a little more about what went on in those pivotal days. I assumed they called it the Hancock-Clarke House because John Hancock was there the night Paul Revere and William Dawes came to town. But the guide will give you so much more information about Hancock and his family.

If you are a history lover as we are, you can't miss this stop. Well worth the price of admission. And follow their guidance and visit the Buckman and Munroe Taverns too. We had such a wonderful day in the area and will always remember it thanks to people preserving these sites.

Thank all of you for doing that.

My wife and I really enjoyed visiting this house Soley for the history it represents . This house is where it was on April 19th, 1775. Paul Revere rose up to this house at 12 midnight to awaken Sm Adams and John Hancock. The tour and history is incredible at what happened here. Tour guides are very knowledgeable. This is a definite must.
