  • The Merchant’s House Museum is NYC’s only family home preserved intact—inside and out—from the 19th century. Built in 1832 just steps from Washington Square, the house offers an intimate glimpse of domestic life during the pivotal era of the 19th century when New York City was transformed from a colonial seaport into a thriving metropolis and the center of US commerce.
