The Fraunces Tavern Museum is one of New York City's oldest landmarked buildings. The building houses not only the museum on it's upper levels, but one of the oldest bars in New York on the bottom floor, which is still decorated like it was in the 1800's. Several notable events have occurred at the tavern, including speeches from George Washington, meetings between Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton, and a terrorist bombing. Learning about the building's rich history is worth the trip, even as a local New York City resident.
