Paul Revere House
Built about 1680 — Boston, Massachusetts
#NC-17520-MA - Notecards
Also available in Notecard Assortment #AST-1761

This is the last 17th century wooden dwelling still standing in any major American city. Built by wealthy merchant Robert Howard, the house was 90 years old when Paul Revere purchased it in 1770. On April 18, 1775, the silversmith left his home to begin his famous 15-mile midnight ride to Lexington, warning Samuel Adams and John Hancock that British troops were marching from Boston to arrest them. He would not dare reenter his home until nearly a year later.

In 1902, John P. Reynolds, Paul Revere’s great grandson, bought the building to save it from demolition. A third floor, added before the Revere family moved in, was removed to restore the house to its original condition by 1908. Today, one room contains artifacts from Howard’s time and three others contain Revere family furniture, silver made in his shop and other artifacts.
