Paul Revere House, Boston: 15 reviews and 41 photos
Paul Revere was a talented silversmith and member of the Revolutionary movement in Massachusetts, his attempts to warn prominent Massachusetts patriot members Samuel Adams and John Hancock, as well as the Lexington countryside of the impending approach of British Regular troops on April 18, 1775 was popularized by poet William Wadsworth Longfellow's highly fictionalized poem "The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere".
My family and I happened to stumbled upon this grave and the "Mother" Goose grave while out celebrating my college graduation. After doing some research I discovered that the burial ground was founded in 1660 and is the 3rd oldest burial ground in Boston. It gets its name from the fact that grain was once stored where the current church now stands back in 1737, which is when the graveyard was named.
Visiting the burial ground is free of course but it's only open from 9 AM to 5 PM.
