Fraunces Tavern was a meeting hall and inn built in 1719 at Queen (now Pearl) and Canal (now Broad) Streets in New York. It was the site of significant events associated with the Revolutionary and Early National Periods, including Washington's farewell to his troops in 1783. It was restored and opened as a museum and restaurant by the Sons of Liberty in 1907.
