Paul Revere House

Paul Revere House
Boston's oldest residential neighborhood, the North End, contains some of the city's oldest buildings. The Paul Revere House is the oldest in downtown Boston. Built in 1680, it was owned and occupied by Paul Revere and his family most of the time from 1770 to 1800. Today it is operated, along with the neighboring Pierce-Hitchborn House, as a house museum by the Paul Revere Memorial Association, which restored the dwelling in 1908 after it had been used for a number of different purposes, including a cigar factory and bank.

The Paul Revere Memorial Association, a private, non-profit organization, operates both the Paul Revere and Pierce/Hitchborn Houses.

Hours: For more information visit the Paul Revere House.
Admission: Small fee for each house; combination tickets available. Call (617) 523-2338 for more information

Did You Know?

Drawing of Bunker Hill Monument under construction.

Did you know that the financing for The Bunker Hill Monument was a hand-to-mouth project, culminating in a bake sale in 1840, three years before the dedication? By contrast, The Dorchester Heights Monument was financed by an appropriation from the Massachusetts Legislature amounting to $100,000.
