History buffs, particularly those with an interest in the Revolutionary War and Colonial America, will love visiting the Fraunces Tavern and its museum. Fraunces Tavern is the oldest standing structure in New York City and a favourite haunt of George Washington. It was at this site where Washington said goodbye to his officers after America won the Revolution.
The museum is located upstairs from the Fraunces Tavern restaurant, which is a 1907 replica of the original 1796 tavern. Visitors can stand right where Washington stood in the famous Long Room of 1783. The museum features exhibitions of art and artifacts about New York City at the time of the Revolutionary War.
