Landmarks of New YorkBuilt by and for Christopher Billopp about 1680, this house was long a center of colonial hospitality. It is known also as "Conference House" because Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and Edward Rutledge met here with Lord Howe at his request on September 11, 1776, in an unsuccessful effort to halt the American Revolution.
