The Mount Independence Local Historic District is a critical step in a renewed effort to preserve the history of our town for future generations. Lexingtonians have reaped the benefit of our forebears protecting our Town’s history for future generations. We take stewardship of our historical assets very seriously. The establishment of Mt. Independence Historic District continues that tradition and preserves this history for future generations.

The establishment of the proposed Mt. Independence Historic District will make sure that future redevelopment  of the Dudley Murphy House and any future redevelopment in the proposed district,  respects Lexington’s cultural, architectural, and historical resources and thoughtfully reflects the Town’s interest in diversity, inclusion and historic preservation.
