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.

It would be just another statue if it were not of Paul Revere on his horse in front of The Qlld North Church. The two are synonymous with the outbreak of the American War of Indepenance. The cast itself is quite good but cannot help but wonder if it was anyone else would b We even bother looking at it?

If you near the Old North Church, it's worth your time to see the Paul Revere statue. It's well presented and beautifully done.

One way to take the Freedom Trail walking tour will take you right by this statue on your way to Old North Church, and there is a particularly interesting photo you can take that includes both the statue and the church. However, if you're not taking a picture, you'll probably not break stride on your way by. That's not to... More

An impressive statue in a very un-impressive park. Needs a plaque with a brief history lesson. No parking on this super congested street.

The Paul Revere Statue is very impressive as you walk toward the Old North Church. The park that it sits in, is very nice and gives you a break from the Freedom Trail. Good place to take pictures and soak in the history.

I have been walking for a while on the trail. It is a nice tree shaded area that you can sit and do a little people watching. the statue is very impressive.
