History

The Birthplace of American Liberty

The history of our boutique luxury hotel, Inn at Hastings Park, is entwined with that of Lexington, the Birthplace of American Liberty. With many landmarks within steps of the Inn, guests can walk or bike along the path that Paul Revere followed on his Midnight Ride, step onto he Battle Green, where the “Shot Heard ‘Round the World” sounded, visit the historic Munroe Tavern, which the British Redcoats took over on their retreat back to Boston—and where George Washington once dined. To stay with us is to stay within
the pages of a history book.

A Legacy of Innkeeping

Beginning in colonial times, inns and taverns played an important role in our New England location. Travelers on horseback eager to find a place to rest, eat, and seek shelter from the region’s mercurial weather, gathered with locals to discuss business and politics and to socialize. History books tell us that the local militia that fought the first battle of the Revolutionary War on the Lexington Battle Green mustered their courage by raising a few pints at Buckman Tavern—which you can still visit right down the road today.

An Inn Story

At the Inn at Hastings Park, we are bringing back the spirit of innkeeping to Lexington with the restoration of our three historic buildings. Built in 1888, the Main House was home to a descendant of one of Lexington’s first families, who settled the town in the 1600s. The second is the Isaac Mulliken House, named in honor of the spirited politician who lived there in the mid-nineteenth century. The Inn’s third building is the Barn, which served as Mulliken’s original carpentry shop.

What’s Inn a Name?

The Inn draws its name from another piece of local history. Maria Hastings was a beloved philanthropist who lived in Lexington in the 19th century. During this time, when books were precious and libraries were few, Maria gave the first donation to the Town of Lexington’s to establish a free public library. Maria’s impact on the town is lasting and Hastings Park—just across from the Inn—was created in her memory. Maria loved Lexington and folklore has it that her happy ghost still wanders today through her Cary Street neighborhood.
