Lexington is a town in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, United States. The population was 31,399 at the time of the 2010 census.

Lexington was first settled circa 1642 as part of Cambridge, Massachusetts. What is now Lexington was first incorporated as a parish, called Cambridge Farms, in 1691, and was incorporated as a separate town in 1713

For decades, Lexington showed modest growth while remaining largely a farming community, although it always had a bustling downtown area, which remains so to this day. Lexington began to prosper, helped by its proximity to Boston, and having a rail line to service its citizens and businesses. Today, the very popular Minuteman Bikeway occupies the site of the former rail line.

Lexington, as well as many of the towns along the Route 128 corridor, experienced a jump in population in the 1960s and '70s, due to the high-tech boom. Property values in the town soared, and the school system became nationally recognized for its excellence.

Lexington is famous for being the site of the first shot of the American Revolution, in the Battle of Lexington on April 19, 1775. Every year, on the third Monday of April, the town observes Patriots' Day. Events begin with Paul Revere's Ride, with a special re-enactment of the Battles of Lexington and Concord. At 6 a.m., there is a re-enactment of the skirmish on the Battle Green. Throughout the rest of the year many tourists enjoy tours of the town's historic landmarks such as Buckman Tavern, Munroe Tavern, and the Hancock-Clarke House, which are maintained by the Lexington Historical Society.

Located 11 miles northwest of Boston (just minutes from Cambridge/Boston) and east of Concord, Lexington is also within 2-3 hours' driving distance from Cape Cod and the beaches of New Hampshire, Maine, Rhode Island, and Connecticut. The natural and cultural resources of the Berkshire Mountains are also a few hours' drive west.

It enjoys direct access to two state highways, Route 2 and Route 128/I95, both major Boston area corridors, and is connected to public transit through the MBTA bus service to the Red Line. Local bus service is provided within Lexington by LexPress. The Town also has a high average income and a median family income $111,899 and over 69% of the population hold a bachelor’s degree or higher.

Lexington borders: Burlington, Woburn, Winchester, Arlington, Belmont, Waltham, Lincoln, and Bedford.

Lexington is also renowned for its public education system, which includes six elementary schools, two middle schools, and a high school. Lexington High School was recently ranked the 304th best high school in the nation by Newsweek.
