Artisans like the Reveres rented or owned two-story wooden houses with a central chimney and two rooms on each floor. In 1770, when Paul could finally afford to buy a house, something that his father never achieved, he purchased a seventeenth-century wooden row house in North Square. Built around 1680 for Robert Howard, a wealthy merchant, the house had been at the height of fashion in its day, but that day was long past by the time Revere bought the house. 10 William Clark, the merchant who gave his name to Clark's Wharf and Clark Square, built his handsome three-story brick dwelling in 1711, before he lost his fortune in the French wars.

He maintained a lively interest in books, newspapers, and ideas throughout his life. His education did not end at the North Writing School but continued through his own reading and discussions at his shop, taverns, political clubs, and town meetings. Explaining to his cousin John Rivoire of Guernsey why the colonies had to fight a war with England, Revere offered a lengthy review of the Imperial Crisis, which seems to have been the result of an extensive reading of newspapers and pamphlets, along with attendance at political meetings.

The riot also showed how "men of all orders"from "Persons of Mean and vile Condition" to artisans of the middling ranks to "Persons of Influence in the Town"could unite in defense of their interpretation of the rights of Englishmen. That lesson would not be lost on Samuel Adams and Dr. Joseph Warren when they mobilized "men of all orders''among them, Paul Reverein the patriot cause of the 1760s and 1770s. 35 Within a short time of the Knowles riot, another controversy broke out in Massachusetts over the actions of one of the Reveres' North End neighbors.
