Paul Revere House, North End, Boston

 

A true "Colonial" (built while America was still a colony) frame house, post and beam construction, built in 1677. It was already 93 years old when Paul Revere bought it. His 16 children were all born here. In 1773 Revere left this house to go to the Boston Tea Party and in 1775 to start his famous midnight ride. The home is furnished with many of Revere's belongings and looks today exactly as it did when he lived here.

The house is open to the public daily and is a stop on Boston's Freedom Trail.
