    Paul Revere was one of my childhood heroes, which, in retrospect, I'm grateful for now, living in an age when people look up to frivolous icons like Justin Bieber.

    It's an amazing feeling, stepping through the house of the American hero that sounded the start of the Revolutionary War. And while Paul Revere never peed into a tavern mop bucket whilst drunk (not on record, anyway), he remains an entertaining figure to this day.

    Nestled in the North End, this historic house is well maintained and very interesting to history buffs.

    The is Paul Revere House that located in the North Ends of Boston. The house sits in a narrow street with loads of people around. The house is not accessible, but worth just to see the outside of building.

    If you've been in one 18th/19th century American house you've pretty much seen them all. But for a reason I can't put my finger on, this one deserves 5 stars. For someone who loves history, there is just something fascinating about seeing the home of this American hero and his [enormous] family.

    Talk about a time warp. The building is quite obviously out of place, but the plaza around it is cute. Even better, it's in the North End neighborhood, so get a healthy dose of Italian in after your visit. If you overindulge, it's a surprisingly short walk back to the Business District.

    So not worth the price of admission. We got in there and there were these displays of a pretty pathetic nature. It is not even a nice house. Not that I was expecting a mansion or anything, but the layout ... well anyway, go in if you want. It is not expensive. You are not going to miss anything if you don't though.

    The Paul Revere House gives a fantastic glimpse into what life was like in Boston in the 1700's. Besides the fact that it was owned by a well known historical figure, it's a quaint house that really makes history more interesting.

    The Paul Revere House is a cool destination along the Freedom Trail. I stopped by for a hot second, snapped a few pictures with my mom, and within a half an hour we were on our way. Even though it cost several dollars and was a very small self-guided tour, I did learn a few facts about Paul Revere and his home life.

    Adorable house that makes you think you've transported yourself across the pond and into the heart of Old England. I love how the look of a house or a building can make you feel as if you're somewhere else...that's exactly what the Paul Revere house does.

    Be sure to arrive early enough in the day to take a look inside - we were too late!

A popular stop on the Freedom trail and the oldest building in downtown Boston.
