Those Places Thursday ~ US Customs House





In 2005 I made my first research trip to another state. The trip was to Pennsylvania where my great grandfather settled after immigrating from Norway. This particular day (after I was done with my research) we took a sight seeing trip to New York. It was the first time either of us (my husband and I) had been to New York. The US Customs House, partially shown above, is located in the Financial District. The buildings in the financial district are amazing to see. They are massive, and full of architecture. The US Customs House, located at One Bowling Green, had this banner displayed when we were there. I appreciated the message on the banner as advertised by the Smithsonian, I believe you will also:

"Listening to Our Ancestors"


Thanks for stopping by! 

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
