Outhouse linked to Paul Revere is excavated for artifacts

Boston city archaeologist Joe Bagley displays fragments of pottery and a tobacco pipe recovered from a site that experts believe may have contained an outhouse used by Paul Revere. Experts say the Pierce-Hichborn House in Boston’s historic North End, built next to Revere’s house in 1711, was owned by one of Revere’s cousins, and the renowned American patriot himself likely visited on numerous occasions.

Paul Revere is known for his midnight ride on April 18, 1775, warning the colonial militia that the British were coming.
