Paul Revere Capture Site

Paul Revere did not complete his midnight ride; he, along with fellow riders William Dawes and Dr. Samuel Prescott, were apprehended by British troops at this site along the Byway in Lincoln. Dawes and Prescott escaped, but the troops questioned Revere and forced his return to Lexington, where they took his horse and released him. The Paul Revere Capture Site includes a parking area for visitors and features informational panels to educate visitors about the midnight riders and Paul Revere’s capture.
