Revere is located in the state of Massachusetts and a city in Suffolk County and sits along the Massachusetts Bay in the northeastern part of Boston. The area where the present-day Revere stands were called Rumney Marsh and were settled in 1626 and became a part of Boston in 1632 up until 1739 when it became a part of Chelsea. The British schooner Diana was looking for food supplies that were destroyed by the locals of the Chelsea Patriots during the American Revolution and was referred to as the Battle of Chelsea Creek. Revere was considered a summer resort since its founding, the city’s development has been slow because of the presence of the extensive marsh areas. The area was known as the Coney Island of Boston in the middle of the 20th century because of its beaches, entertainment, dog track, and other facilities, and the city has declined to become a tourist destination.
