Gracie Mansion was built as a country retreat for New York shipping merchant Archibald Gracie in 1799 and has served as the official residence of the Mayor of the City of New York since 1942. The house was restored in 2002, transforming Gracie Mansion into the People’s House, providing increased accessibility to the public. Gracie Mansion is preserved and maintained by the Gracie Mansion Conservancy, a private not-for-profit corporation established in 1981.
Remarks will be made by Jamie Drake, FASID, Principal, Drake Design Associates, the designer in charge of the 2002 restoration of the historic house.
