Description
A popular stop on the Freedom trail and the oldest building in downtown Boston. In 1775, local silversmith Paul Revere left this house to warn fellow rebels Sam Adams and John Hancock that British ... Read more
troops were headed to Lexington to arrest them. That night was immortalized by Longfellow's poem, "Paul Revere's Ride." The home was built in the late 1600s and bought by Revere in 1770. Inside you will find meticulously restored rooms and find yourself transported to 1775.

A very interesting and important piece of history. Located right in the heart of the Northend, the Paul Revere house is a must see when visiting the city for the first time!

So much history in such a hidden place in town. Crazy to think that Paul Revere walked the streets of a modern town.

The price of admission for the Paul Revere House is cheap ($3.50 per adult), so popping in won't break the bank. It is tiny and cramped inside, so try to go when few tourists are out and about. It's a fairly short thing to do (20 minutes or so given how thoroughly you like to read each and every sign). Photos are not permitted inside the house and history buffs will enjoy it.

Warning... Paul Revere rarely shows up anymore, so plan accordingly. All kidding aside this is a small museum originally built as a house for the tiny people of the 1700's. Most kids will be rolling eyes by the exit... But for lovers of history it is a good place to visit.

The Paul Revere House is a neat historical sight in the middle of the North End. You'll pass it on the Freedom Trail that runs through Boston. It costs several dollars for admission. If you're into history, it's worth a visit, though it is very small! It won't take you longer than 20 minutes to visit and that's if you read every sign.

PS: You can't take pictures inside the house, and you won't be able to take pictures of the house from the outside without paying admission (the view is obstructed).

Great tour that should be followed by tasting the wonderful flavors of the North End.

Paul Revere was one of my childhood heroes, which, in retrospect, I'm grateful for now, living in an age when people look up to frivolous icons like Justin Bieber.

It's an amazing feeling, stepping through the house of the American hero that sounded the start of the Revolutionary War. And while Paul Revere never peed into a tavern mop bucket whilst drunk (not on record, anyway), he remains an entertaining figure to this day.

The is Paul Revere House that located in the North Ends of Boston. The house sits in a narrow street with loads of people around. The house is not accessible, but worth just to see the outside of building.

So not worth the price of admission. We got in there and there were these displays of a pretty pathetic nature. It is not even a nice house. Not that I was expecting a mansion or anything, but the layout ... well anyway, go in if you want. It is not expensive. You are not going to miss anything if you don't though.

Be sure to arrive early enough in the day to take a look inside - we were too late!

Talk about a time warp. The building is quite obviously out of place, but the plaza around it is cute. Even better, it's in the North End neighborhood, so get a healthy dose of Italian in after your visit. If you overindulge, it's a surprisingly short walk back to the Business District.

The Paul Revere House gives a fantastic glimpse into what life was like in Boston in the 1700's. Besides the fact that it was owned by a well known historical figure, it's a quaint house that really makes history more interesting.

The Paul Revere House is a cool destination along the Freedom Trail. I stopped by for a hot second, snapped a few pictures with my mom, and within a half an hour we were on our way. Even though it cost several dollars and was a very small self-guided tour, I did learn a few facts about Paul Revere and his home life.

Adorable house that makes you think you've transported yourself across the pond and into the heart of Old England. I love how the look of a house or a building can make you feel as if you're somewhere else...that's exactly what the Paul Revere house does.

If you've been in one 18th/19th century American house you've pretty much seen them all. But for a reason I can't put my finger on, this one deserves 5 stars. For someone who loves history, there is just something fascinating about seeing the home of this American hero and his [enormous] family.
