Description

The home was built about 1680 on the site of the former parsonage of the Second Church of Boston. Paul Revere owned the home from 1770 to 1800, although he and his family may not have lived here for most. After Revere sold the home in 1800, it soon became a sailor’s boarding house. By the second half of the 19th century, the house had become an immigrant tenement and the ground floor was remodeled for use as shops. At various times a candy store, cigar factory, Italian bank, and vegetable and fruit business could be found in the house. In 1902, Paul Revere’s great-grandson, John P. Reynolds Jr. purchased the building to ensure that it would not be demolished. Over the next few years, money was raised, and the Paul Revere Memorial Association formed to preserve and renovate the building. In April 1908, the Paul Revere House opened its doors to the public as one of the earliest historic house museums in the nation.nThe dwelling as restored in 1907-1908, with its third story front extension removed, resembles its late-17th-century appearance. Upstairs chambers contain period furnishings from Paul Revere’s era, including several pieces that belonged to the Revere family.n
