The Conference House was built circa 1680 and is located at the southernmost edge of the world. (southern edge of New York City, and the State, too.)

The building got its name from the conference that took place there on September 11, 1776. Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, and Edward Rutledge met with Lord Howe, commander in chief of British forces in America, and his brother General Sir William Howe, commander of the land forces.

The Brits wanted to end the American Revolution, but Ben, John, and Eddie, said, “Ahhh . . .no.”
