Tour the home of Paul Revere, the iconic figure that warned that the British were coming during the American Revolution era.
Paul Revere's house is one of the few 17th-century buildings that are still standing in Boston, Massachusetts. Revere and his family lived here from 1770 to 1800. Later, it became a sailor's boarding house. In the early 1900s, Paul Revere's great-grandson purchased the home, and with the help of the Paul Revere Memorial Association, it was renovated and opened to the public in 1908. It is a national historic landmark that visitors can tour year-round and happens to be one of the oldest historic house museums in the United States. Ninety percent of the structure is original, and the inside features furnishings from Paul Revere's era.
Feel free to take a self-guided tour and gain insight into Paul Revere's life. It is currently open Thursday through Sunday from 10 am to 4:30 pm. Please call ahead for group reservations. If you enjoy history, this is a great place to explore while visiting Boston.
