eTech.TV will be on location at Fraunces Tavern filming various segments before a studio audience at the Fraunces Tavern Museum. Come be part of our studio audience and be part of the show!
The show will be filmed in the historic flag gallery, where over forty of the more than 200 flags from the collection will serve as the backdrop for the eTech.TV set. The design and colors of the American flag were developed representing the states and the French people who fought for the cause.
The Fraunces Tavern Museum has varied exhibitions of art and artifacts as they relate to the historic site and the American Revolution. After the Revolutionary War was won, George Washington gave his farewell address to his generals in this very same 1719 building, now a landmark located at 54 Pearl St. He said to his officers of the Continental Army "With a heart full of love and gratitude, I now take leave of you. I most devoutly wish that your latter days may be as prosperous and happy as your former ones have been glorious and honorable."
The building once held the first offices for the Departments of Foreign Affairs, War and Treasury (1785-1788). After the federal government promised to move its offices south, the building once again became a tavern.
