I’m happy to report that the Robbins House (circa 1830), built and inhabited by the descendants of Revolutionary War veteran and former Concord slavery survivor Caesar Robbins, was saved from demolition today and will soon be returned close to its original site across from The North Bridge and Old Manse.

The Robbins House is slated to become The Robbin’s House Interpretive Center and will be integrated into the National Park Service programs completing the monuments in a monumental location.

A local non-profit corporation called “The Drinking Gourd Project,” was formed to save this house from demolition. Its main mission is to save, restore and adapt the 1780 home of Caesar Robbins and to create the Robbins house Educational Center.

Here’s a few pictures of the move . . . more detailed post on the lifting and move later.
