Preserving the Past: The Restoration of Fraunces Tavern

Preserving the Past is a digital lecture that takes a comprehensive look at the architecture, design, and history of 54 Pearl Street, one of the oldest buildings in New York City. Led by historian Mary Tsaltas-Ottomanelli, the lecture will explore three hundred years of the building’s history – from its early construction on some of the city’s oldest landfill, to the extensive restoration in the 20th century, to how the building continues to survive surrounded by skyscrapers.

The lecture will include a brand new, exclusive look in the museum’s collection with Collections Manager Lisa Goulet who will offer in-depth descriptions/close-ups of pieces from the Museum’s collection that are rarely shown to the public.
