This building was built in 1719 as a residence for Stephan Delancey. He was a refugee, but turned into a succesful merchant. At some point in time this tavern was run by Samuel Fraunces. The tavern was not just used for food and drink, was was also used for politics. The museum's permanent colleciotn is comprised of painting, art, drwaings and documents related to the colonial, revolutionary and early federal periods of American History, with a focus on New York.
