A popular stop on the Freedom trail and the oldest building in downtown Boston. In 1775, local silversmith Paul Revere left this house to warn fellow rebels Sam Adams and John Hancock that British troops were headed to Lexington to arrest them. That night was immortalized by Longfellow's poem, "Paul Revere's Ride." The home was built in the late 1600s and bought by Revere in 1770. Inside you will find meticulously restored rooms and find yourself transported back to 1775.
