Paul Revere (December 21, 1734 – May 10, 1818) was a Patriot in the American Revolutionary War, warning the militia to the approach of British forces through his Midnight Ride and a signal at the top of the Old North Church.
As a prominent figure in the American Revolution throughout the Boston area, several landmarks have been dedicated to him:
- His house and the Paul Revere Monument are present in the North End of Boston.
- The dome of the Massachusetts State House was constructed with copper smelted by Paul Revere.
- Paul Revere was buried in the Old Granary burying ground, along with Samuel Adams, John Hancock, and other victims of the Boston Massacre.
- The Old North Church still stands as a historical landmark, with two lamps symbolozing the historic warning against oncoming British forces still remaining at the church.
- The Shamrock Taphouse in Boston Harbor was frequented by Revere.
- The township of Revere and locations around it, such as the Revere satellite array and Revere Beach station, are dedicated to Paul Revere.
