Paul Revere's House is a six hundred and seven year old landmark in Boston's North End. It still stands, albeit partially, as a part of the Freedom Trail in 2287.

Background[edit | edit source]

This is what remains of the historic house of Paul Revere. Built in 1680, this wooden building is the oldest structure in all of Boston. It occupies the former site of the Second Church of Boston's parsonage, which was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1676. Around the middle of the eighteenth century, the building went through two major renovations. First, the roofline facing the street was raised substantially to bring the house in line with the Georgian architectural style that had become prevalent at that time. The second, a lean-to was added in the ell between the two 17th-century portions of the house.[1]

In 1770, this home was bought by famed patriot Paul Revere. Paul Revere dwelled here with his family (including his 16 children) until 1800. He was living here when he made his famous midnight ride to Lexington and Concord to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancock that Redcoats were en route to arrest them and seize the militia weaponry.[2]

After Revere sold the house, it became a tenement with its ground floor remodeled for use by various businesses. When the building faced demolition John P. Reynolds Jr – Paul Revere's great grandson – purchased it to prevent its demolition and restore it. In April 1908, the Paul Revere House opened its doors to the public as one of the earliest historic house museums in the United States.[1] This famous landmark would later become part of the Freedom Trail, and would survive – mostly intact – through both the Great War an following centuries.

Layout[edit | edit source]

The House is partially collapsed and offers no loot, as gutted ruins are wont to.
