Not much has been known of Dr. Joseph Warren- an architect of the colonial rebellion, and a man who might have led the country as Washington or Jefferson did had he not been martyred at Bunker Hill in 1775.
Fraunces Tavern Museum’s mission is to preserve and interpret the history of the American Revolutionary era through public education.
Thanks to the Sons of the Revolution in the State of New Yorkwho opened the Museum in 1907 the Fraunces Tavern complex is comprised of four 19th century buildings in addition to 54 Pearl Street.
