Washington DC wasn’t always the capital of the United States .
New York City was and Federal Hall was the place where George Washington was sworn in.
The Federal Hall Memorial is located right across the street from the New York Stock Market right on Wall Street .
You can’t miss this building.
It’s the one with the big statue of George Washington in front of it.
Once you walk into the building , one sees a replica of George Washington’s desk .
Everything you want to see is on the first floor, and it’s not only the story of George Washington’s journey from his home in Virginia to New York City to be sworn in, but it’s basically showing you the history of the American colonies, especially New York .
You learn the story of how this building was the first home of the United States Treasury and Customs House.
If you need some information on New York City , and other National Parks in the country, there is a information room right before you exit.
I would advise going there right after you finish seeing the exhibits .
Yes, you can take pictures here.
Admission is free and it’s open Monday thru Friday .
Enjoy the pictures .
