A Monument to Memory
300 Years of Living History
NOW ON VIEW
Though we typically remember its significance in the American Revolution, Fraunces Tavern continued to be an active and important social space in the many years following Washington's farewell. On the 300th anniversary of the building's construction, A Monument to Memory explores the many roles 54 Pearl Street has played in the public life of Lower Manhattan, inviting visitors to discover how the stories we tell through historic preservation and inquiry shape our memories of the past.
