The Paul Revere House

29 North Sq., Boston, MA 02113

The Paul Revere House, built in 1680, was the colonial home of American patriot Paul Revere during the time of the American Revolution. Located in Boston's s North End, it is now operated as a nonprofit museum by the Paul Revere Memorial Association. Its heavy beams, large fireplaces, and absence of interior hallways are typical of colonial living arrangements. The two chambers upstairs contain several pieces of furniture believed to have belonged to the Revere family. In December 2016, the association opened a 3,500 square foot visitor and education center connected to the house by an elevated walkway. Immediately adjacent to the Paul Revere House is the brick Pierce–Hichborn House, built about 1711 as an early Georgian house. It is also operated as a nonprofit museum by the association.
