It was from here that Paul Revere made his famous midnight ride, igniting the spirit of liberty. Still, by the early 1900s, the humble home of America's revered patriot was being threatened by progress. It would take a group of Bostonians, self-appointed as guardians of the past, to save it as an American treasure.
More than two centuries later, this home stands as a tribute to Boston's remarkable history and its commitment to preservation. When Revere moved to this Medieval-style well-built house, it was was already over 90 years old. The first home ever owned by Revere, it was a great source of pride and comfort for the middle-class silversmith.
Good bargains and a lot of creativity have helped this homeowner make her 1907 house a showplace.
