Inscriptions Caption:
This edifice was erected 1790, at the foot of Broad-Way, facing the Bowling Green. It was originally designed for the residence of Genl. Washington (then president of the United States) but, the Capitol being removed, he never ocupied [sic] it. It then became the Governors' House, and was the residence of Governors George Clinton and John Jay. The building was subsequently used for the Custom-House, from the year 1799 until 1815, when it was taken down.
