Additional Details:
Fraunce's Tavern, erected in 1730, at Broad and Pearl Streets, was the homestead of the DeLancey family, sold to Samuel Fraunce in 1762, who opened it as the Queen Catharine, making it renowned for conviviality in Revolutionary days. Washington made his headquarters there, and there delivered his farewell address to the officers of the Continental Army in 1783. The Sons of the Revolution restored it years ago, and it is the Mecca now of those who seek the interesting relics of the Revolution.
