The Paul Revere House
Paul Revere was a Boston native and local silversmith renowned for his role in the American Revolution. On a night back in 1775, he left home to warn fellow rebels Sam Adams and John Hancock that British troops were headed to Lexington to arrest them. That night was immortalized by Longfellow's poem, "Paul Revere's Ride." The house was built in 1680 and bought by Revere in 1770. It just escaped the wrecking ball when Revere's descendants recovered the property in 1902. Now a national historic landmark, the building is one of the oldest in downtown Boston and reminiscent of colonial America. It opened its doors to public-viewing and displays an unique assortment of personal belongings and memorabilia.
Paul Revere's house is a perfect place for any age! It looked like the house hadn't been touched from the last time he lived there! You even could tell they hadn't done any work to it because the floor still seems shakey!! But anyway back to my point, It is seriusly a historic step into the amazing Paul reveres house!
When in Boston make a point of including Paul Revere's House on your to do list...it's an amazing home located in Boston's historic North End. As a history lover I was very impressed & to be able to walk thru a part of our American history was incredible.
The Paul Revere house is a perfect stop as you walk along the Freedom Trail. It's Downtown Boston's oldest building and one of the few left from the colonial era of America. Fortunately, we got in free with our Go Boston Card so we didn't have to pay the admission fee which was pretty pricey, I noticed. Whatever you do though, make sure you stop in!
I looked forward to this part of the trip. It's so cool to see Paul Revere's house there with everything else. I would like to have seen more (they referred to the basement fireplace, but we didn't get to see it), but it was definitely worth seeing if you like history. The staff members were willing (and able) to answer any questions that guests had. I would consider it a must see. The fee is reasonable, and it doesn't take a long time to go through the house.
