Fraunces Tavern

Fraunces Tavern Museum (New York, NY)

Best known as the site where George Washington gave his farewell address to the officers of the Continental Army in 1783, it is now a restored complex made up of four 19th century buildings as well as the 18th century Fraunces Tavern Building. It was built in 1719 as an elegant residence for merchant Stephan Delancey and later purchased in 1762 by tavern-keeper Samuel Fraunces.
