Take a moment and think about where you live. Why do you live there? What factors influenced your decision? Now think about the people who lived there before you, and the people before them. In fact, go all the way back to the very first people to call this place “home.”

The town we today call Concord is nearly 4 centuries old. However, it exists within a far older place Indigenous people call Musketaquid. For thousands of years the river provided food, transportation and fertile soil for agriculture.

Within Concord and Minute Man National Historical Park there is physical evidence of the people of Musketaquid dating back thousands of years! In this video NPS Museum Specialist Nikki Walsh will show you some of the amazing artifacts in the park collection. (2 min)
