Tour the 17th-century home of one of Boston's most "revered" former residents. – In Short
A key stop along the Freedom Trail, the Revere house dates back to 1677 and was already old when socially ascendant Paul bought it. Today, it's the last 17th-century house still standing in Boston (it was from this very doorstep that Revere snuck past the redcoats to carry out his midnight ride). Interpretive programs and tours delve into the domestic history of the times and the changing character of the North End.
A North End treat! – Few places in America show you the life of an average man, let alone an average man that everyone knows. Paul Revere is more than the guy riding a horse and yelling about the British troops marching. He is what Americans pride themselves on...a man with a family to support, a man with strong beliefs and a man who is not afraid to stand up for what he believes is right. The Paul Revere House gives visitors a glimpse into his busy life as a dentist, engraver, bell maker, coroner, and messenger. Not only does the Paul Revere House teach you about the man behind the myth, but also gives you the building's history. Revere bought it when it was 90 years old and it has had many uses since including, a greens shop, a cigar rolling shop, and tenement housing for immigrants. Their seasonal living history demonstrations are great!
