Fodor's Review

Built in 1712, this house is now the only local survivor of its era aside from Old North Church, which stands nearby. Picture the streets lined with houses such as this, with an occasional grander Georgian mansion and some modest wooden-frame survivors of old Boston's many fires—this is what the North End looked like when Paul Revere was young. Today, the lower rooms serve as the Old North gift shop, with Captain Jackson's Colonial Chocolate Shop and the Printing Office of Edes & Gill, which offer an interactive look into the past. Watch a chocolate demonstration (and get a taste) and then learn how printers worked in the colonial era.
