In its beginnings, Revere was home to many famous faces in the Revolutionary War, including George Washington and, of course, Paul Revere.

After America gained its independence and the Eastern Railroad was built, Revere saw a period of rapid population growth and development. The beaches nearby drew many residents from the hustle and bustle of Boston, and the city's size tripled in population in a span of 15 years at the turn of the 20th century. Although the community had been growing for centuries, the city was not officially incorporated until 1915.
