The North Bridge is a place I walk when I want to be surrounded by beauty and history. The approach on Monument Street is pictoral, dotted with stunning antique architecture. The bridge is an intriguing structure. Simple, stoic, strong, beautiful. The gently rolling hills surrounding the Buttrick House and the river capture the essence of New England. This is the birthplace of our nation, and a Concord treasure. A visit to The North Bridge is magical, calming and inspiring.
