More About Lexington Depot
The Lexington Depot was built in 1847 and was recently renovated. It is operated by the Lexington Historical Society. It used to be the train station for the line that ran to and from Boston. The path of the line itself is now the Minuteman Bikeway. The Depot is not open to the public, but can be rented for private functions of up to 100 people. Contact the society for more information. There is also a town-operated parking lot located behind the building, which can be used for event parking.
