Built in 1680, Paul Revere bought the house in 1770. He owned it until 1800. He lived here when he made his famous midnight ride. The house is decorated in the style of when he lived there. Even for the wealthy life was hard. The docents were well informed and happy to share their knowledge of this historic residence. There... More

As part of the Freedom Trail, the Paul Revere House is exactly what it sounds like. There's a lovely exterior, and you see much of what the life was like in the 18th century. A little tight in certain places, but given the age of the house, it's to be expected. It may not be for everybody, though. But for... More

If you are in Boston and doing the Freedom Trail, don't skip the Paul Revere House, it was one of the major highlights of the trail, the house is small and very well preserved, I was the only one visiting at the time, there were two volunteers (one in each of floor of the house) who will tell you more...

For five dollars, it's a fun little 20-30 minute activity. You see the inside of the house and learn a little bit of Paul Revere's horse ride. It's cool to experience some old history.

You get to see a total of two rooms inches house and one small museum/gift store. Not even worth $5.

This is another one of the many historic places to see when you are visiting Boston and an absolute must for history buffs. Myself, not being a history buff believes that it could use a little more context as it only takes a few minutes to get through on a self guided tour.

It was really cool to see a house that old, with so much history and original pieces in it. We enjoyed that aspect of it. There were hardly any visitors there at that time. We were very disappointed that the woman manning the entrance did not tell us that one of the three houses is only available to see at... More

After learning of the history to do with the Boston massacre and how Paul Revere rode to warn his fellow men that the British were coming, I knew when I came to Boston I had to visit his house. It is part of the freedom trail which is a must when visiting this amazing place. The house is $5 for... More

This is worth a visit as it's the home where he lived and that makes it real history. However I would have liked more information and context as I hadn't heard of Paul Revere before. The rooms are small and it gets pretty crowded. There is a guide in each room to answer questions but overall I felt a little... More

Suzy Sorry our guides didn't provide you with the context you were hoping for. We encourage visitors to seek out our guides and ask them directly for specific information or grab a copy of our brochure which I hope you did have an opportunity to visit our new education and visitor center which opened in December. The exhibits in that... More

Staying in North End

Neighbourhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
