Lexington Massachusetts Real Estate

The Minuteman Statue in Lexington, MA.

Just eight miles northwest of Boston is the Birthplace of Liberty—Lexington, Massachusetts. The town earned its nickname because of a 1775 battle on the Lexington Green between 77 local militia and 700 British light infantry which is considered to be the first battle of the American Revolution. Today, the town maintains its independent spirit, and Lexington real estate is particularly attractive for those looking for a vibrant community outside of Boston.

With a population of slightly more than 30,000, Lexington is small, but it’s certainly not sleepy. Its largest employer is MIT Lincoln Laboratory, and its top employment sectors include biotechnology, defense research, and software. However, Lexington isn’t just known for its tech industry—the historic downtown is home to many local restaurants, shops, and other small service businesses.

Many families moving to the Boston area look for Lexington properties due to the district’s reputation for excellent public schools. Lexington has six elementary schools, two middle schools, and one high school, with an average ratio of 12.5 students per teacher. Lexington High School is recognized by US News as a top national school. Because the town is relatively small, most families are able to find a Lexington house within easy walking or biking distance of the schools.

When not at school or work, many kids and adults in Lexington enjoy spending time outdoors. The scenic Minuteman Bikeway, which runs from Bedford to Cambridge, passes directly through Lexington, and the town is also home to a number of parks and nature conservation areas. Plenty of Lexington apartments and homes have a beautiful view of wooded areas or one of the town’s twenty streams from their windows.

Every third Monday in April, Lexington honors its history with a huge Patriot’s Day celebration. The celebration begins in the weekend leading up to Patriot’s Day with parades, historical reenactments, a pancake breakfast, a road race, and more. During the spring and summer months, Lexington and nearby Concord attract a number of tourists who are interested in learning more about the early history of our country and strolling by historical Lexington homes from the 18th and 19th century.
