Future Home of Paul Revere House Education and Visitor Center
The 1835 Building Before Construction
A New Education and Visitor Center
One hundred years after opening to the public on April 18, 1908, we will dramatically improve the visitor experience by converting this 1835 building that stands directly behind our property into an Education and Visitor Center. The facility will include youth and family program space, restrooms, museum shop, midnight ride exhibit and displays. It will also include an elevator offering full handicapped access to all floors as well as to the second floor of the Paul Revere House for the very first time.
In order to keep to our construction schedule we must raise at least $500,000 in 2013. Several naming opportunities remain so there is still time to honor your family or a loved one in this important facility.
