Portrait of Fraunces Tavern, 1905

Portrait of Fraunces Tavern, 1905

Fraunces Tavern, at the corner of Broad and Pearl Streets, is reputed to be the oldest surviving building in Manhattan and played a significant role in the early history of New York and the United States.  Most famously, it is the site where George Washington bade farewell to his officers on December 4, 1783. Those who have been to the site in recent years will probably note that the building in the photo bears very little resemblance to the Tavern as it stands today.
