North Square

We couldn’t be more pleased that Boston Preservation Alliance announced a 2020 Preservation Award for the City of Boston’s North Square project today. This labor of love by the whole community, the wonderful artists involved and the contractors who worked carefully and patiently around our many tourists, has vastly improved and added to what was already an important historic space. Now it is accessible and educational and beautiful all at once. We’re so proud to have been involved and to see it receive this recognition! #PreservationHub https://bit.ly/3cSmuMR

North Square in the North End has always been surrounded by history. It was the site of the original Old North Meeting House and home of Increase Mather, the head of Harvard College and pastor of the church, until the great fire in 1676. The home of Paul Revere, built in 1680, sits on one side, and....

A Reflection on Racial Injustice and the Role of Public History from the Paul Revere Memorial Association - Paul Revere House

The Paul Revere Memorial Association stands for racial justice in America and in Boston.

We believe that education at public history sites has a tremendously important role to play in working towards a just society for all people. In order to better effect change, we must continue to make clear the injustices towards African Americans and all people of color that are interwoven into the centuries of history we share at the Paul Revere House.

In doing so, we will continue to listen to and learn from our local Boston and national communities while understanding that the Revere House and similar historic sites are places with difficult and complicated racial legacies. As historians we understand that the past must be viewed both within its own context but also in light of what it reveals about who we are today and who we want to be tomorrow.

To learn more about our institution’s mission driven commitment to this work please read the following special edition of our #RevereExpress blog, A Reflection on Racial Injustice and the Role of Public History.

Henry Knox commanded the Continental Army’s artillery, founded the academy that became West Point, and went on to become the first Secretary of War for the new United States. Before any of that, though, he was a young man in Boston. He was a Whig sympathizer who was in love with the daughter of a ...

Certainly possible (likely even!) that the Reveres had pieces that were not all new in their occupancy at 19 North Sq. (1770-1800) - how ‘bout those feet on the whole example City of Boston Archaeology Program?! Wish some of those showed up too!

This white salt-glazed teapot finial (knob on lid of teapot) in the shape of a bird was recovered from an archaeological excavation at the Paul Revere House in 1983. White salt-glazed stoneware was most popular during the early to mid-18th century, indicating it may have been tableware used by Paul Revere and his family. The deposit in which this finial was found was incredibly artifact-rich, including a large assemblage of ceramics, small finds, pipe fragments, animal bone, and glass, most dating from the 18th century. It is likely that this deposit represents an 18th century yard surface, if not a refuse or trash deposit. The second photo shows a whole white salt-glazed teapot from a private collector. Provenience: PRH.0011.154

Looks like (original PRH resident) Robert Howard had good taste! His family may have owned the vessel these fragments originated from. Who doesn’t love some bold Westerwald salt glazed stoneware??!?

These fragments of Westerwald salt glazed stoneware with applied prunts (small sprigged circular decorations) were recovered from the Paul Revere House during an archaeological excavation in 1983. These artifacts were found amongst others dating from the last decades of the 17th to early 18th century, such as Iberian storage jar, north Italian slipware, Staffordshire slipware, manganese mottled, tin-glazed earthenware, and larger bored pipe stems. Given the dates of associated artifacts, it is likely that these Westerwald fragments were owned by Robert Howard, a wealthy merchant who purchased what would be the Revere property in 1681 and owned it until his death in 1717. This applied decoration, with the addition of cobalt blue, was commonly used on Westerwald vessels, as seen in the second photo of a complete jug from the Victoria and Albert Museum.
