Welcome to the home of the Billerica Colonial Minute Men. side5

The American Revolution had not started. The residents of Billerica, like the other towns surrounding Boston, were stirring in a cauldron of patriotic fervor. Loyalties were questioned. To be tarred and feathered meant something. Minuteman companies were active, and the militias were prepared. Yet the tradesmen and their sons still tanned leather, made brooms, and cast pewter. The fields would still be plowed. The wives and daughters still baked, sewed, and made candles.

This is the history we bring to life – recreating the real lives of the Billerica farmer, soldier and his family.

The Billerica Colonial Minute Men support the Billerica Minuteman
Statue Association.

Our mission is to raise the funds to cast and install a minuteman statue on the Billerica Common.
