  • Federal Hall is a museum in the 1842 Customs House on the site where George Washington was sworn in & the Bill of Rights was written. Highly recommend!  more »
  • Unwittingly we went to visit the federal Hall and discovered its importance in the history of new York. It travels easily and quickly but with enough detail to know the historical facts that sheltered these walls.

  • This was a really interesting place to visit. A calm oasis in the centre of the financial district open to exploration. There are interpretive displays and docents wandering the halls to ask questions. Quite interesting architecture.
  • I visited NYC with friends and this was only about a block away from Trinity Church. I had no idea this is where President George Washington was sworn in and inaugurated. This is a great piece of American history and a must see if you are anywhere near the World Trade Center area. This is the site of the First US Congress and where George Washington was sworn in as the first US President. The building is post those events but houses a small Museum and is a NPS concern, worth a quick look when in Wall Street.
