Three ideas to help you plan your weekend:

Saturday, the Milldam will be a hive of activity starting with the move of the historic Caesar Robbins house from Bedford Street where it has stood for decades, to the Minute Man National Historical Park on Monument Street. The house’s owners said the house will be loaded on a flatbed truck starting at about 6 a.m. Then beginning at 8 a.m., the house will take a 2.2 mile journey through Concord Center to its new site. For more details, go here. Stand along the route and wave as it passes by.
