Celebrating July 4th
Lunchtime Lecture-Celebrate July 4
July 11: 12:30 p.m. Mount Vernon Hotel Museum
How did New York celebrate July 4th more than 200 years ago? In 1826, Washington Square Park –the former burial ground for victims of yellow fever-became the site for the city’s rousing Independence Day Jubilee celebration with lots of liquor and song. Learn more at Friday’s Lunchtime Lecture at the Mount Vernon Hotel. Bring lunch; coffee and tea is on us! Free with Museum admission.
