Revere, Massachusetts

Revere is a city in Suffolk County, Massachusetts, located approximately five miles from downtown Boston. It is named after the American Revolutionary War patriot Paul Revere. Revere borders the towns of Winthrop, East Boston and Chelsea to the south, Everett and Malden to the west, Saugus and Lynn to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the east. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 10 square miles, of which 5.9 are land and 4.1 square miles of it (40.98%) are water.

Revere was previously inhabited by Native Americans who belonged to the Pawtucket tribe and were known as the Rumney Marsh Indians. The leader, or sachem, of the Pawtuckets was Nanepashemet of Lynn.

Revere Beach is the oldest public beach in the United States. It has a fairly active beach front district. From its inception, Revere Beach was known as “the people’s beach,” used mostly by the working class and the many immigrants who settled in the area. The Revere Beach Reservation Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998, including the full Revere Beach Reservation in 2003. The Beach was the focus of a major revitalization effort by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation together with the city in the 1980s and was officially reopened in May 1992. It now boasts high-rise housing units, a re-sanded beach, restored pavilions and a renovated boulevard.
