13 Fraunces Tavern

Fraunces Tavern

Fraunces Tavern
Fraunces Tavern here was created in 1719. It's one of the oldest buildings in all of Manhattan. And it's one of the lucky few that survived the Great Fire of 1835 that broke out just up the road in Hanover Square. Well, in 1762, it was bought by Samuel Fraunces, who ran the tavern here, and he was a bit of an American patriot during the revolutionary war against the British. And when the British were finally defeated in 1783, Washington resigned from the military and held his farewell dinner right here inside Fraunces Tavern. Today, you can still find a bit of Washington inside because in the museum upstairs, they’ve got a bit of his tooth and a lock of his hair.
