Samuel Fraunces-Advisor to our Founding Father


Samuel Fraunces

Where: This tavern is located in lower Manhattan, on Broad Street and Pearl Street, NYC.

Who: Samuel Fraunces was known as a restauranteur, inn keeper and perhaps more importantly, a close servant and advisor to George Washington, during the Revolutionary War.

Why: This location was actually owned by Mr. Fraunces during the Revolutionary War.  Also, this location was known as a regular meeting location for George Washington as well.  The Tavern stands mostly as landmark to Revolutionary War and role Mr. Fraunces’ played.

This location has a classic feel to it.  I love the presence of history in one of the most modern cities in the world!
