The Carlisle Mosquito Online

Friday, November 8, 2002



Carlisle certainly has more than its share of rocks and boulders, but reader Miles Goff of Bedford Road was able to identify the specific rock we pictured in a recent issue of the Carlisle Mosquito ("Where in Carlisle?", October 25, 2002.) He wrote the following message via e-mail:

"If this is the rock I think it is, I have stood looking at it from the same perspective on April 19

At the bottom is a photograph of the front view of the rock, which bears the names of the 16 men who left their homes in what is now Carlisle on April 19, 1775 to oppose the British at Concord's North Bridge. The rock is located just north of the First Religious Society Church's front door on School Street, and was moved to its current home by DPW crews in the summer of 1974.
