Welcome to the home of the Billerica Colonial Minute Men.
The American Revolution had not started. The residents of
Billerica like the other towns surrounding Boston where stirring
in a cauldron of patriot fervor. Loyalties were questioned. To
be Tarred & Feathered meant something. Minuteman companies were
active and the militias were prepared.
Yet the tradesmen & their sons still tanned leather, made brooms
& 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 & his family.

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

fitting, lasting, and the ultimate tribute to the men
and women who fought for our freedom” - Bill Brimer,
