Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

Get a first-hand look and progress update of the renovation at Flushing's own Bowne House.  Built in 1661, the John Bowne House is an amalgam of New World Dutch and English architectural traditions. Continuity of ownership provides a view of changing cultural values in New York.  Bowne's defiance of a religious ban imposed on colonists during the 1600s helped establish America's legacy of religious freedom.

Tous at 1:00 p.m., 2:00 p.m., 3:00 p.m., and 4:00 p.m.. Maximum people per tour is 15.  Registration is required.
