Special events at the Paul Revere House are a unique opportunity to experience what life was really like in colonial Boston. Our Saturday afternoon Living History Programs really bring you back in time. They are held each Saturday from May to October. Be sure to view our website or contact us for the latest schedule of these popular events.
In these programs, you can see demonstrations of colonial crafts and perhaps even shake the hand of the tailor, cabinetmaker or silversmith. You can view samples of their work and learn, as you ask them about their trades.
When the craftsman isn't visiting, Saturday's in the Revere House courtyard are filled with the sound of colonial music performed by some of the regions most talented musicians. You might enjoy sea chanteys and ballads or revel in compositions by Beethoven or America's own William Billings. If you find your way to the Revere House in April (Patriots Day Weekend) you may experience the history and precision of the 10th Massachusetts Regiment.
During the holidays, the Revere House becomes a "living museum" as costumed
interpreters acquaint visitors with colonial celebration customs and offer them the finest in refreshments made from original colonial recipies. Join us and celebrate days of thanksgiving and Christmas as the Revere family did more than 200 years ago.
In addition to the events mentioned above, you may also want to discover our storytelling programs, walking tours of the North End (week of July 4 only) and annual lecture series in September. As always, check our website for the latest news.
Access to our programs is provided for people with disabilities. Please contact the Education Department at (617) 523-2338 for further assistance. We look forward to your visit and think you'll agree - the history and intrigue of Paul Revere's Boston is truly alive and well at the patriot's former home at 19 North Square.
