Fraunces Tavern Museum

Explore the Fraunces Tavern Museum on your university or college trip to New York.

Fraunces Tavern Museum is a long-standing relic of the old New York and a fascinating visit for students of American Politics.

In 1762, the home was purchased by tavern-keeper Samuel Fraunces, who turned the residence into one of the most popular taverns of its day.

However, the site is best known as the location where Washington gave his farewell address to the officers of the Continental Army in 1783, as well as playing a pivotal role in pre-Revolutionary activities.

It has been owned by Sons of the Revolution in the State of New York Inc. since 1904, which now claims it is Manhattan's oldest surviving building. The building is also part of the American Whiskey Trail and the New York Freedom Trail.
