History

Revere Beach is a public beach in Revere, Massachusetts. It is the oldest public beach in the United States and is one of the Boston area’s most popular beaches. Revere Beach is located 5 miles north of Boston, and the beach is 3 miles long.

The beach was created in 1896 when the city of Revere purchased land along the shoreline of Massachusetts Bay. The land was originally part of an area known as Rumney Marsh, which had been used for grazing cattle. The beach was originally called “Cattle Beach” but was renamed in 1900 to “Revere Beach”, after the city’s founder, Paul Revere.

In July of 1896, Revere Beach opened to the general public and with the heatwave of 1896, an estimate of 45,000 attended the opening day.  Over the decade’s Revere Beach became a popular vacation spot as the development of hotels and cottages were built along with restaurants, dance halls, roller-skating rinks, bowling allies, and 3 well-known roller coasters, the Derby Racer, the Cyclone, and the Lightning making Revere Beach a hotspot for years to follow.

After the Blizzard of 1978 Revere Beach suffered major destruction to the sea wall, the sidewalk, and many structures and businesses.  It was revitalized in 1996 with a three-day celebration and became a national historic landmark in 2003.
