  The Meriam House at Meriam's Corner, Concord, Massachusetts - Minute Man National Historical Park Where the American Revolution Began April 19, 1775

Announcing Meriam's Corner Reunion on Saturday, April 11, 2020

INFORMATION FROM OUR FACEBOOK PAGE: Observance at Mer(r)iam Corners, Concord MA. What we know so far. Happening Sat. April 11. 2020. There's no time schedule yet. In past years the parade forms up at the Ripley building on Meriam Rd. at 12 Noon on Saturday and marches down to Meriam's Corner for the speeches, Colonial band selections, etc. All are invited to march in the parade behind the Mer(r)iam banner. Non-marchers can stay at Meriam's Corner & watch (bringing a folding chair is a good idea as there's no seating).

After the Celebration is over we go back to the Noah Brook's Tavern, Rte. 2A, for lunch with Dwight Merriam and other organizers; usually a talk by Park officials about the state of the Meriam house. Sometimes we vote to use our Meriam's Corner money to fund certain projects. We normally always have a Merriam Vineyards wine auction & raffle.

It's always fun meeting relatives from afar, and trying to figure out how we're related, which can be done on this website. Festivities are usually all over about 5 PM.

The final schedule will come out nearer to the event, and there might be changes.... Hope this helps those planning the trip.
