The Paul Revere House

Make you next School Field Trip or Group Outing in Boston a step back in history! On the night of April 18, 1775, silversmith Paul Revere left his small wooden home in Boston’s North End and set out on a journey that would make him into a legend. Today that home is still standing at 19 North Square and has become a national historic landmark. It is downtown Boston’s oldest building and one of the few remaining from an early era in the history of colonial America.

The Paul Revere House offers interactive educational programs and School field trip s designed to acquaint students with Boston s long and colorful history. Built inthe 1680s for a wealthy merchant, the house became home to silversmith and famous midnight rider Paul Revere during the Revolutionary era in Boston. In the 19th century, landlords divided the structure into cramped apartments for immigrant families. Containing remnants of many periods,the house provides a perfect setting in which to explore everyday life from colonial times to the early 20th century of Boston.
