Just five miles from downtown Boston, Revere is named for Revolutionary War hero Paul Revere. It is home to Revere Beach, the oldest public beach in the United States and once a popular summer destination for its beachfront entertainment. In fact, one claim to fame was the Wonderland Greyhound Park, which closed in September of 2009 after 74 years in business. Now a working-class city, Revere is still popular with beachgoers. It is also the site of the first naval battle of the Revolutionary War, at Rumney Marsh. Revere residents with pending legal matters travel to nearby Chelsea to visit Chelsea District Court, located at 120 Broadway. Revere is also near the federal courthouse in downtown Boston.
