Paul Revere’s Resting Place To Get Overhaul

BOSTON (CBS) — One of Boston’s best-known, historic cemeteries is getting an overhaul.

The Granary Burying Ground is the final resting place for Paul Revere, John Hancock and Samuel Adams.

In the next few weeks, workers will start making improvements, including widening sidewalks and adding new signs at historic plots.

The work should begin by the end of the month.

    OK on who’s dime, what will it cost, How much are we to fork over to do these repairs,,, Why cant volentiers do some of the work,, I understand historic areas need repairs and upgrades, HOWEVER with the way our economy has been can we truely afford this, FURTHERMORE.. where did they take the money from, which service did they cancel, or borrow from. Which department will suffer a short fall and then there willl be a huge PLEA to raise revenue to correct such a short fall… It seems that when something needs to be fixed, corrected, repaired or renovated they seem to have tons of money to do the progect, HOWEVER,, with in a few moneys we hear stories of shortfalls, and some department is in dier need of revenue to correct such shortfall…. Which leads me to think there is a lot or shifting money around from department to department just to satify a project… BUT our roads and bridges are a crumbling mess…….. and there are other landmarks that go unnoiticed … towns are going belly up and it will only get worse,,,,,
