Really enjoyed our tour of the Paul Revere House. It is well preserved with some great artifacts that really take you back in time and you get to learn more about Paul Reveres upbringings.

This place is not terribly interesting, but it's historically significant so it's worth a visit. Takes all of 15 minutes to explore everything and isn't particularly worth the time to get here, but if you're in the North End for other reasons I'd put this...More

Apart from the Paul Revere associations the building is very interesting as an example of that time. Furnished in the original style with guides in costume. Now in North End surrounded by Italian restaurants.

If you are doing the Freedom Trail, you will run right into The Paul Revere House. Located in the North End, it is a great example of life in the 1700s. It is downtown Boston’s oldest building and one of the few remaining 17th-century dwellings...More

This can easily be found if you do the walking trail in Boston, interesting historical site with the obvious connections. The house has been sympathetically renovated over the years and has some interesting exhibits. Soak up the history and enjoy this historic building.

The house itself only has four available rooms open to the public. They have furniture from the time period set up as if he still lived there, some of the pieces belonging to Paul himself. My favorite portion of the walk- through was reading the...More

I know little about American history. Shame. This was a great stop on a cold day. And the guides are awesome. They love Boston and its history. Great stop on the Freedom Trail.

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

You can probably spend 1 to 1 1/2 hrs if you read all the things in the museum or 1/2 hour to walk through the house

Favorite North End Resaurants (5 Replies)
Also, does anyone know of the names of these two restuarants in the North End? One is next to the Paul Revere House, it is tiny and dark with exposed brick. The other one, I'm not sure what street it is on, but the inside is bright and they have murals of cracked archways painted on the walls? Also, what is your favorite restaurant in the North End? Thanks so much!!

Hi Kiwi4422, Mamma Maria's is in a brick townhouse located at 3 North Sq., I think you might mean that one for having exposed brick in that exact vicinity. Limoncellos at 90 North Sq. has murals painted on the wall, both of these establishments are located on the same street as where Paul Revere resided. There's also a Carmen's located at 33 North Sq. With me, your question really can't be answered with an exact restaurant though regarding the murals of cracked archways...More

Printing Press?? (6 Replies)
Do any of you know of a small museum that opened recently (last 2 years or so) that is focused on the old-time printing press for newspaper? I read about it and it sounded interesting but I can't remember anything else about it. It might be located in the North End and/or near the Paul Revere house. We are visiting for Christmas. Thanks for any suggestions!

Thanks for that information. I was able to find my notes and it is the Printing Offices of Edes and Gill behind the Old North Church.

Tour de New England...Day 8: Boston (9 Replies)
Wednesday 9/16/09 The best way to really experience a city is to walk it...and that would be the agenda on Day 8. Took the Red Line T to Park St. and began by exploring the Boston Public Garden...very pretty. Was nearly swarmed by a horde of hungry ducks after throwing them a few bread crumbs. Walked through the Boston Common and began following the red bricks of the 2.5 mile, 16-sight Freedom Trail. After the 1st few stops, had to make an appointed detour to the Bromfield Camera store to...More
