History of Revere

The first inhabitants of the area that is now Revere were the Native Americans of the Pawtucket tribe. The people were known as the Rumney Marsh Indians and their leader was Nanepashemet of Lynn. The Native Americans inhabited the area in the 1600s.

The settlers in the area in 1630 were helped to survive by the Native Americans who had very good knowledge of the wilderness in the area.

In 1634, Rumney Marsh became annexed to Boston. Some other farms in the area of Rumney Marsh, including Winnisemmet and Pullen Poynt, were also annexed to Boston. By 1739, Rumney Marsh, Pullen Poynt, and Winnisemmet became established as the town of Chelsea.

Rumney Marsh was the largest of the three towns in Chelsea and became the Town Center. By 1846, the town of North Chelsea was established and Pullen Poynt became established as the town of Winthrop.

North Chelsea changed the name to Revere in honor of the American Patriot named Paul Revere in 1871. Paul Revere was a war patriot in the American Revolutionary War. Revere became a city in 1915.
