The Paul Revere House in the North End, the 18th-century home of you know who, is trying to raise $10,000 to convert a building that abuts the historic site's courtyard.
The Paul Revere Memorial Association, which runs the house, wants to turn the building, which itself dates from 1835, into what it calls an Education and Visitor Center. The 3,600-square-foot center would include youth and family program space, restrooms, a museum shop and exhibit areas. It would also have an elevator offering full handicapped access to all levels. The association wrapped an external renovation of the building in 2010. Stay tuned.
