Revolutionary New York

In honor of July 4th, go online with Fraunces Tavern Museum to enjoy a quick and lively overview of New York City’s role in the birth of a new nation. Fraunces Tavern Museum of Colonial and Revolutionary New York, and the famous Fraunces Tavern Restaurant, where George Washington gave his farewell address to Continental Army officers in 1783, are also perfect landmarks to visit during this Independence Day weekend or later this summer. The Museum’s Web site also includes graphics, special events, links to other colonial-era landmarks and information about the New York Freedom Trail, and of course the story of the Tavern and Museum, which occupy the “oldest surviving structure in Manhattan,” built in 1719.
