Experience the history of one of the oldest standing structures in Manhattan. From its construction in 1719 to today, Fraunces Tavern has grown and evolved with the city around it- from the tavern where George Washington bid farewell to his officers after the Revolutionary War, to a boarding house, to a museum. This tour explores the 300 years of history at 54 Pearl Street, its significance to the American Revolutionary era, and the efforts to restore and preserve the building.
