The beautiful equestrian statue of Paul Revere can be found in Boston’s North End neighborhood. The statue was created by Cyrus Edwin Dallin and was modeled in 1885. Dallin was a teacher at the Massachusetts State Normal Art School and the Paul Revere project was one of his first statues. He started work on it when he was just 22 years old. Dallin decided to present Revere during his famous Midnight Ride with Revere sitting on a horse. The city of Boston purchased the statue and cast it in bronze in 1940. The statue was dedicated on September 22, 1940, complete with a ceremony featuring a band, chorus, and many speakers. Thousands came out to see the statue unveiling.
Today, the Paul Revere Statue is one of the most visited and photographed places in Boston. Photographers love taking photos of the statue with the beautiful Old North Church in the background!
