“The British are coming!” This line may never have been said as we know it, but the man behind it is very much real. He is Paul Revere—a patriot, silversmith, and Freemason. Pay a visit to his humble abode, where he lived with his mother and nine of his children (he had 16 in total). He led an interesting life, dabbling in business, art, the military, and espionage. Paul Revere is most famous as the man who rode through the night, warning the towns that the British Army was coming—an event that ignited the Revolutionary War. Historians peg Revere’s actual words closer to “The Regulars are coming out!” since, the local colony still referred to themselves as British, too, at the time. The Paul Revere House tells the tale, not just of one man, but of home life in 17th and 18th century Boston. Setting foot into the house is a step into a simple home that lived to see through extraordinary times.
