  North Square
by zChris

This is North Square, one of the most historic squares in Boston. Here you'll find the Paul Revere House, the oldest house in central Boston, built around 1680. The house was home to Paul Revere, famous for his ride to warn rebel colonists of the British advance and his subsequent patriot activities and silversmithery. The house has been restored to its original appearance circa 1770 and is tourable. The rest of the square includes a small garden, a beautiful church, several other colonial houses, and some excellent Italian restaurants. Some of the original cobblestone is intact as well.
