“Visit Charlestown's Main Street Historic District. The town features 62 structures on the National Register of Historic Places. Some of these buildings date back to the 18th century. Structures include the town hall and meetinghouse, a parsonage, a schoolhouse, gas stations, a diner (circa 1930-40), and many houses and barns. While you are in Charlestown, stop over at the Fort at #4, a living history museum located off Main Street on Route 11. The museum will take you back to the authentically reconstructed settlement of Charlestown during the 1740s. "Meet" the early settlers and experience — firsthand — what life was like in colonial New England. ”
