Join Fraunces Tavern Museum’s first summer youth program and explore the aftermath of the HMS Asia bombardment in the summer of 1775 to give voice to the past and those who lived the historical reality.
Students will investigate the many elements of the 18th century New York City life through research and exploratory theater techniques. Taking an active role in their learning processes, participants will ponder the physical, emotional, and mental components of the time period and create personal characters from their findings. As a final stage of the process, participants will bring these characters together for a uniquely devised performance piece at the Fraunces Tavern Museum set in the summer of 1775.

Opening March 14, 2014
Fraunces Tavern Museum announces its newest exhibition, Defining Lines: Maps From the 1700s and Early 1800s.
Come explore the landscapes of America’s early history, as seen in maps of the 1700s and early 1800s. This exhibit examines the detailed depictions of an emerging nation as portrayed by cartographers. The 27 exhibited maps provide a wider perspective to the evolving nation’s place in history, including a never before seen map from 1804 depicting the United States’ postal routes.
This exhibit is made possible, in part, through the generous support of Dr. Michael C. Wolf, Sons of the Revolution in the Commonwealth of Virginia, and Sons of the Revolution in the State of New York, Inc.
