A special recording of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem “Paul Revere’s Ride” is available now from the Paul Revere House. The audio was created for the museum’s 100th anniversary celebration last year and the MP3 download version is being offered through the Revere House website as a special “thank you” to those making a donation as small as $10 to the Revere Call to Action Capital Campaign. Donors receive instant access to download the 7-minute MP3 audio plus an educational document in PDF format that discusses the poem in detail, helps separate fact from fiction, and contains a map of the ride and photos.
Your donation will enable the Paul Revere Memorial Association to convert an 1835 two-family home that abuts their property and sits on land once owned by Paul Revere into a 3,600-square-foot Education and Visitor Orientation Center. This will enhance the visitor experience with modern facilities and amenities, expanded interpretation, and an enlarged museum shop. It will result in increased educational offerings for schoolchildren, teachers, and families and allow for a reprogramming of the space in the Hichborn House (ca. 1711) enabling this National Landmark to achieve its full potential as an interpretive site. The Association will also be funding other projects that will ensure the long-term preservation of the Paul Revere House (ca. 1680).
A sample of the special recording of “Paul Revere’s Ride” can be heard below. Make a donation today and receive instant access to the full version.
Students participating in Walking Tours of Historic Boston school programs receive this recording for free.
