What is important about 1804?
The New-York Historical Society was founded in 1804 to explore the richly layered political, cultural and social history of New York City and State and the nation, and to serve as a national forum for the discussion of issues surrounding the making and meaning of history. 1804 demonstrates and symbolizes the enduring qualities of New-York Historical Society.
