Guided House Tour


The Merchant’s House was built in 1832 and purchased by Seabury Tredwell, a prosperous New York City hardware merchant, in 1835. The Tredwell family continued to live in the landmark late-Federal and Greek revival style row house for nearly 100 years. On this guided tour, we'll visit five floors of period rooms filled with the family’s original possessions – furniture, decorative objects, household goods, books, even their clothing – and see how a wealthy family and their four Irish servants lived in mid-19th century New York.
