Revere is an unincorporated community in Madison County, North Carolina, United States. It is also known as Sodom and Sodom Laurel.


Revere is particularly rich in ballad singers, and noted folklorist Cecil Sharp transcribed several "Old World" ballads sung to him in 1916. In 2001, Rob Amberg published a book Sodom Laurel Album that chronicles the traditions and lifestyle in Revere. Residents and folk singers Dellie Norton, Doug Wallin, and Sheila Kay Adams are featured in the book.
