Copper Mill Hall

Revere and Son – Entrepreneurs

The second floor of the Copper Rolling Mill contains a retrospective of entrepreneurs Paul and Joseph Warren Revere, the Revere Copper Company they founded, and the Paul Revere Heritage Site. Exhibits are free and open to the public whenever the Northern Spy Restaurant is open.

The Historic Barn


The free exhibit explores historical and contemporary copper artwork modeled after Paul Revere’s copper engraving, hammering, bending and stamping methods. Made possible by a grant from the Frank R. and Elizabeth Simoni Foundation,  the exhibit is being held in collaboration with T. Michael Thomas of The People’s Academy and the Foundation for a Green Future (organizer of Boston GreenFest).  Other contributors include: the Massasoit Ink Monkeys,  Handshouse Studio, the Canton Historical Society, George Comeau, Massachusetts College of Art and Design Professor Matthew Hinçman and student Jane Butera, artists Todd Cahill, Catherine Martin, and Hollis Machala, teacher Pat Johansen, and volunteers Jack O’Neill and Kevin Boyce.

The Historic Barn is usually open to the public on Saturdays, from 11:30AM to 2:30PM.
