This house may not be much to look at but the extent of preservation of the house and artefacts in it is impressive.

As a Brit, I wanted to make a surprise visit! The house is so well maintained and there is also some additional work being done in the yard area. It gives a great insight into the domestic life of the era and the docents provide an interesting narrative as you walk through the rooms. Unfortunately, cameras are not allowed inside.... More

For a modest fee the historical society will let you climb the stairs into this tiny, at the time quite well appointed, two story home where silversmith and patriot Paul Revere lived with his family. After his first wife died records suggest that Revere continued to live here with his second wife, his mother-in-law and up to 9 of his... More

We walked from the North Church and Freedom Plaza and were greeted by a brick square with some benchrs with a historic plaque mounted on the wall. All this amid a lot of painted billboards. Next time we'll dig deeper in the tour guide before we start walking.

This was very interesting. It doesn't take long and you pick up some interesting facts. It's a little difficult to find since the cabbies don't know where it is. We had a nice day so we just kept walking until we found it.

Stopped in the Paul Revere house during a recent trip to Boston. They've done a great job preserving the house and a lot of interesting information to read while viewing the different parts of the house. We always hear about Paul Revere in the text books and was nice to learn a little bit more about his life and how... More

I visited here several times as a kid and it was even better than I remember. The docents were very knowledgeable and entertaining. I am anxious to see what the new welcome center will look like!

It's amazing to think that some of the discussions regarding our country's founding occurred in this house. It is very similar to other old homes, but PAUL REVERE lived in this one! Definitely worth a stop.

The Paul Revere House is located in the North End. The house itself is only like 4-5 rooms and it can become a little bit cramped. The house is also a little bit lopsided but I suppose that's what happens after it has been there for so long :) I'm not really sure if there was a backyard because they... More

You can't see anything other than the exterior from the street and the admission is worth it! There is a huge construction project going on next to the house to improve accessibility. Both floors of the house have a well informed docent available to share facts and answer questions. The docents, combined with 90% of the infrastructure still in tact... More
