On the night of April 18, 1775, Paul Revere left his comfy quarters in Boston's North End for a daring ride that would secure his place in the history books. Your tour of his home, now a national landmark, offers a rare glimpse of life in colonial America.

On the night of April 18, 1775, silversmith Paul Revere left his wooden home in Boston's North End and set out on a journey that would lead to his status as an American legend and national hero. Today, the home, still standing at 19 North Square, is a National Historic Landmark, and is a popular tourist destination for those drawn to the history behind Revere’s famous “Midnight Ride”. The Paul Revere House is the oldest building in downtown Boston, and is one of the few remaining structures existing from the early Colonial era of American history.

Paul Revere’s legendary ride, commissioned by Dr. Joseph Warren, took him north of Boston to Lexington, Massachusetts, where he was to warn revolutionaries Samuel Adams and John Hancock that British troops were en route to carry out an order for their arrests.

Revere, understanding the gravity of the situation at hand, borrowed his friend’s horse, and carefully coordinated his trip north using secret signals sent by the “Sons of Liberty” (including two lanterns that were hung in the Christ Church in Boston—hence the “one if by land, two if by sea” designation), he set out in the darkness. On his ride, he stopped at houses along the route to warn the countrymen of impending danger, and arrived in Lexington at midnight. Revere was joined by William Dawes and Dr. Samuel Prescott and the three men rode on to Concord, Massachusetts, where weapons and supplies were hidden, and where the men were eventually arrested by the British. Revere was released and left, with no horse, to return to Lexington and participate in the famous battle on Lexington Green.

After Revere sold the home in 1800, it soon became a boarding house and tenement, and the ground floor was remodeled for various purposes, including a candy store, cigar factory, bank, and vegetable and fruit business. In 1902, Paul Revere's great-grandson, John P. Reynolds Jr., understanding the value of the property, purchased the building to ensure that it would not be demolished. Subsequently, money was raised and the Paul Revere Memorial Association formed to preserve and restore the building. In April 1908, the Paul Revere House opened its doors to the public as one of the earliest historic house museums in the U.S.

Visit the Paul Revere House on your trip to Boston, and learn more about the great man who played a crucial role in thwarting the British and aiding the colonists in their struggle for independence. The house stands in Boston’s historically Italian neighborhood -North End- and its central location makes it the perfect attraction to visit as part of a complete sightseeing day in the historic center of Boston.

Disappointingly boring
By 7th great granddaughter of a Patriot from Houston, TX on
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Paul Revere House:

This house offers no particularly interesting insights, the interpreters have no exciting information or presentation, and you feel like cattle moving through a cattle chute. The best thing is very cold air conditioning pouring from the vents.

Comments about Smart Destinations Paul Revere House:

Paul Revere had a lovely master bedroom. His mother's (or was it his mother-in-law's)residence in the next room seemed mighty nice of him. We didn't get to see the kid's quarters on the third floor.
