This statue of Paul Revere close to the Old North Church commemorates his memorable ride during the American War of Independence. While it is an impressive statue, there are plenty of other statues in Boston that are equally as good. You will see this on the Freedom Trail as it is between the Old North Church and Paul Revere's House.... More

Walking around Boston following the Freedom Trail we came across the statue of Paul Revere. While it meant nothing to my wife and daughters I have read a lot about the American War of Independence and the role that Paul Revere played in his famous ride to Concord alerting those at his destination and along the route to the likelihood...

Tucked away in the North End, head for a walk, follow the Freedom Trail and make your way through quiet neighborhoods and find the statue, the marker, the Revere home and old church. Worth the walk.

It's not a must see in Boston. It's just an ordinary statue. You can find similar statues in other areas of the city. The Old North church is behind it. And maybe that is the nicest thing about it, the view. Although this is a good spot to have a seat and have a snack or lunch. There is plenty... More

The statue is located along Paul Revere Mall and has the backdrop of the Old North Church behind it. The Mall connects the Old North Church to Paul Revere's House so it is appropriately placed. The statue itself is a nice piece of art, but is probably not something I would single out to visit. While on the Freedom Trail... More

Just an ordinary statue. That's it. Important figure in the american history, but the statue is nothing spectacular. I wouldn't bother to find it, but if you're following the Freedom trail you'll see it. Or if you visit the North End (which you should) you might take few steps more and take a look at it.

The statue of Paul Revere, near Old North Church, stands for the ride Paul Revere took to Concord and Lexington to announce to the patriots meeting there that the British were about to disembark on our shores. This was just before the War of 1776, when our fledgling nation was struggling for independence from England. The horse Paul Revere rode... More

We found it very difficult to photograph this statue because of its rather cramped position. In the end we didn't bother because it just seems to be yet another statue although the quality of the work is undoubtably very good. Not really worth the effort of finding, and it certainly did not generate any excitement in us.

This is a beautiful bronze statue and I found it quite moving. Having studied the history of Boston I felt it important to see this statue as this man played such an important part in American history.
