Paul Revere House
Located in the North End and built around 1680, the Paul Revere House is the oldest building in downtown Boston. It is famous for being the house Revere left from the night of his famous “midnight ride” to warn his compatriots that the British were coming to arrest them. He lived there with his family from 1770 to 1800.
Through the years it has been lived in by many other families and served various purposes, for example, a bank, grocery store and a cigar factory; however, the building was purchased by Revere’s grandson in 1902 and restored by the Paul Revere Memorial Association from 1907 to 1908, allowing it to now serve as a house museum along with the adjacent Pierce-Hitchborn House. Walking inside, visitors are able to appreciate the 17th century appearance and original artifacts like historic documents and Paul Revere’s silverware. Knowledgeable staff and information panels are there to help answer any questions you may have.
Keep in mind the site is small and you’ll probably only need about 20 to 30 minutes to explore. That being said, it’s worth it to learn about the interesting history and facts. For instance, did you know Paul Revere had 16 children with two wives? Or that he was a renowned silversmith who also dabbled in dentistry? You can learn this and more from a visit.
If you’d like to continue exploring Boston’s rich history, Paul Revere’s House is one of the 16 stops on the Freedom Trail. Continue on the next stop, Old North Church, or start from the beginning at Boston Common.
The Paul Revere House is open daily April 15 through October 31 from 9:30am to 5:15pm and November 1 to April 14 9:30am to 4:15pm. Admission is $3.50 for adults, $3 for senior citizens and college students and $1 for children aged 5 to 17.
