Revere History Museum

The Revere History Museum is housed in the former rectory of the Immaculate Conception Church on 108 Beach Street. It is listed on the city’s inventory of significant landmarks, the inventory of Historic and Archeological Assets of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.

The Museum contains sixteen exhibit spaces, each dedicated to a different aspect of Revere’s history and culture. Highlights include artifacts, photos and memorabilia related to:

  • The era in which Revere Beach, America’s first public beach, was known as the “Playground of New England.”
  • The Battle of Chelsea Creek, which was the first naval battle of the Revolutionary War.
  • Revere’s rich agricultural history, including its original seven farms and Slade’s Mill.
  • The history of Revere’s schools, churches and synagogues.
  • The history of Uniformed Service in Revere, including the military and the Fire and Police Departments.
  • Exhibits that shed light on life in Revere in the 19th and 20th Centuries.
  • Meeting rooms which are often used for historical presentations, guest lectures, and other cultural events.

The Museum is operated on a volunteer basis by the Revere Society for Cultural and Historical Preservation. It can be found on Facebook and Instagram. Questions and research inquiries can be directed to and / or (781) 286-2226.
