"On the opposite shore walked Paul Revere
A glimmer and then a gleam of light!
A second lamp in the belfry burns!
And so through the night went his cry of alarm
To every Middlesex village and farm, -
Through all our history to the last,
In the hour of darkness and peril and need,
The people will waken and listen to hear
. . . . the midnight message of Paul Revere."

Born on Hanover Street, lived in North Square, established his Bell Foundry on Foster Street and died on Charter Street

Charged by Joseph Warren to notify the countryside and to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancock at Lexington that the British were on the march. He rode in the night of April 18, 1775 by way of Roxbury. Thus he stands with Paul Revere as a daring messenger of the colonial challenge to British domination. He lived at sixteen North Street.
