Paul Revere (December 21, 1734 – May 10, 1818) was a Patriot in the American Revolutionary War. He warned militia forces 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 in the Boston area, several landmarks are 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, the site of a warning to Patriots of approaching British forces. The signal was the lighting of two lamps to show that the British were coming up the Charles River, a plan devised by Revere. Two lamps can still be found on the top of 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.
