Dating to 1680, the Paul Revere House is the oldest private residence in Boston. It is also one of the few remaining wooden structures of its era. Most importantly, it was the dwelling place of the famous Patriot (and his wife and 16 children). The modest home exhibits the lifestyle of the era, complete with furniture, cooking utensils and such.
Revere left from this North End home on his legendary 1775 ride to Lexington, to warn the Patriots about the impending arrival of the British Regulars. That was actually one of his shorter jaunts, as he also took news of the Boston Tea Party to New York and Philadelphia. But he always returned to this modest little house in the North End. It’s a stop on the Freedom Trail.
