Annual Independence Day Appeal
Join the cause. Support Fraunces Tavern Museum
For 111 years, Fraunces Tavern Museum has been providing the public with an authentic encounter with history. Every year thousands of people cherish the stories told through our five historically landmarked buildings, the events that happened here and our unique, 8,000-piece collection. Through our annual Independence Day Appeal, our goal is to raise $50,000. We hope you will join us in our mission to help keep history alive.
