NYC’s Federal Hall National Museum

Federal Hall National Memorial


26 Wall Street, New York, NY 10005

Federal Hall National Memorial not a grand museum but should you be in the area then definitely stop by. If not for the exhibits itself then at least to appreciate the great architecture. Be sure to take a long look at the marbled roof and some of the finer interior details.

Back in the 1820s and beyond, New York was America’s major port and most of the goods brought in from Europe and elsewhere came through here. Of course there was a need for a customs house large enough to handle all this incoming activity. Thus, work began in 1834 in the construction of this marbled wonder. Completed in 1842, this building is where more than two thirds of the federal income brought in through import duties were taken in. In 1862 it became one of six Sub-Treasury buildings around the country. Gold and silver for the eastern part of the United States were stored in vaults in the subbasement. After the creation of the Federal Reserve System in 1913, this edifice served as the Federal Reserve Bank from 1920 to 1924. It was declared a National Historic Shrine in 1939.

This historical site was the location of many great events. Some of which are:
– George Washington was inaugurated President here on April 30, 1789
– The first Congress of the United States met here
– The Departments of State, War and Treasury were created here as was the Supreme Court

Its exhibit galleries are open free to the public daily from 9:00 – 5:00pm. Guided tours of the site are offered throughout the day. Additional information can be obtained by calling: 212-825-6888
