Design your own piece of block-printed wallpaper! Free with admission to the Revere House.
On the Freedom Trail, in Boston’s historic North End, the Revere House was home to patriot and silversmith Paul Revere from 1770 to 1800. Revere left from the house in 1775 to begin the ride that Henry Wadsworth Longfellow immortalized in the poem, “Paul Revere’s Ride.” Built c. 1680, the Revere House is the oldest house in downtown Boston.
