How You Can Save Paul Revere's Legacy
Many times when faced with the prospects of saving our most historic places individuals can show enormous support that can sway opinion. Quite simply, if you care, then chances are many will care and action will be taken.
The single most important thing you can do is forward the link from this site to all of your friends and family around the Globe. You would be amazed by the power of the Internet to support grass-roots action.
Send a letter to the National Trust for Historic Preservation urging them to list the Revere Mill & Barn as one of the Nation's Most Endangered Resources. A sample letter can be found here.
Take a moment to consider sending an email in support of saving these buildings. Email the local Board of Selectmen and the Canton Planning Board. You may also write a letter to these decision making boards at: Memorial Hall, Canton, MA 02021. Contact our State Senator, Brian Joyce or our State Representative Bill Galvin, and let them know that this is an important part of our heritage.
You can also show your support by sending a letter to the editor of the local and regional newspapers. Many editors accept letters via email. Consider emailing your letter to the Canton Citizen, the Canton Journal, The Patriot Ledger and the South Regional Section of the Boston Globe.
On the Federal level, consider sending a note to Congressman Stephen Lynch.
Ultimately this site will be developed and is currently for sale. Demolition of supporting buildings is underway now.
Prospective owners of the Plymouth Rubber Site in Canton should know that the site they buy has historic and potentially archaeologically significant resources. The purchase of this property after the destruction of these buildings will be an issue for potential owners and significant archeological resources along with hazardous waste needs to be assessed as part of due diligence.
