Paul Revere lived in this house with his family from 1770 until about 1800, with some notable exceptions (such as when he had to lie low because he'd warned the countryside of the British march on Lexington and Concord.)
What with the shortage of firewood in 1776, and the Loyalist insistence on getting back at anyone who'd defied them in the past, you'd think this wooden house might have been torn down too, but it wasn't. This might be because Revere left his eldest son (also named Paul) in town to watch over the estate.
In any event, the building is still around today - one of Revere's descendants bought it in 1905 and turned it into a museum. It's now the oldest building in Boston - in fact, it was already 90 years superior to that of your average McMansion.
