Description 

This rare survivor, dating from around 1711, is one of the few remaining pre-Georgian brick townhouses remaining in New England. After serving as a tenement and store in the 19th century, it was restored in 1950-1951. The house is owned by the Paul Revere Memorial Association and shown as an historic house museum. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, November 24, 1968
