THE REVERE HOUSE AT A GLANCE:  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 on April 18, 1775, to begin the mission that Henry Wadsworth Longfellow immortalized in the poem "Paul Revere's Ride." Built around 1680, the Revere House is the oldest building in downtown Boston. As visitors tour the house at their own pace, museum staff provide fascinating insight into the intriguing furnishings and personal artifacts on display.  For more information about the Revere House, visit www.paulreverehouse.org

MUSEUM HOURS: Through April 14, the Revere House is open 9:30-4:15. From April 15 through October 31, the house is open daily 9:30-5:15. Closed on Mondays, January-March.
