This 18th-century tavern used to be George Washington’s watering hole and the site of his famous farewell to the troops at the Revolution’s close. During the mid- to late 1780s, the building housed the fledgling nation’s departments of war, foreign affairs and treasury. In 1904, Fraunces became a repository for artifacts collected by the Sons of the Revolution in the state of New York. Ongoing exhibits include "George Washington: Down the Stream of Life," which examines America’s first President. The tavern and restaurant serve hearty fare at lunch and dinner, Monday to Saturday.
