The Paul Revere House was the home of the famous American patriot, Paul Revere.
He lived there during the American Revolution and it is now a National Historic Landmark in Boston.
On April 18, 1775, Paul Revere, a simple silversmith, left his home under the instruction of Dr. Joseph Warren to set out on a journey that would leave him famous. He fled his home in the middle of the night headed to Lexington, MA, to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancock that the British troops were marching near to arrest them. Revere even tried to stop at each house to try and warn them that the British were coming. The original house was built in 1680 and was three stories. It is located in downtown Boston and is the city's oldest building. Paul Revere owned the home until 1880.
Currently, the Paul Revere House is open for self-guided tours. The home has been restored and it very closely resembles the appearance it had in the late 17th century. Around ninety percent of the home is the original structure. The home is furnished with some pieces that were owned by the Revere family.
