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