Dropping in on Paul Revere in Boston, Massachusetts
As you wander the narrow streets of the North End of Boston you can’t miss the Paul Revere House—it’s the only wooden building tucked in amid lots of brick. It has “history” written all over it, and as you tour the house you’ll discover that Revere, although best known for that famous ride, had a hand in the history of Boston (from the USS Constitution to the dome of the State House). The house seems tiny for such an iconic figure, and it must have felt crowded to him too, for he was, among all his other accomplishments, the father of sixteen children. That thought will echo in your head as you listen to the floors creaking with every footstep.
