Knox Trail Historical Markers

This page contains images for all the markers dedicated to the route traveled by Colonel Henry Knox and the “Noble Train of Artillery” from Fort Ticonderoga to the Boston Area in the Winter of 1775-1776 that I have encountered along the roads in Massachusetts (principally, but not exclusively, the Upper Boston Post Road). Starting from the end of his journey at Cambridge Common (and at Dorchester Heights), as I walk along the road and encounter a Knox Trail marker I will add an image to this collection. Steven Glovsky has researched this topic in great detail and most of his information can be found on the Wayland Museum and Historical Society Website.
