The Basics

Through the years the home has been lived in by many other families and served various purposes including as a bank, grocery store, and cigar factory; however, the building was purchased by Revere’s grandson in 1902 and restored by the Paul Revere Memorial Association from 1907 to 1908, allowing it to now serve as a house museum along with the adjacent Pierce-Hichborn House. Walking inside, visitors are able to appreciate the 17th-century appearance and original artifacts like historic documents and Revere’s silverware. Knowledgeable staff and information panels are there to help answer any questions you may have.

The house is an attraction offered through the Go Boston Card, a flexible sightseeing pass. Or you can also book a Freedom Trail tour, which includes a stop at the home.

Wildcard

The North End Neighborhood In addition to its many historical sites, the North End is also home to a community of Italian Americans, creating what is known as Boston’s Little Italy. Delis, butchers, salumerias, bakers, wine bars, and restaurants line the narrow streets, making the area a popular location for food tours as well as a good place to grab a bite to eat.
