Merchant's House Museum
Preserved 19th-century home of a wealthy merchant family, with intact interiors & exteriors.
Only 19th century family home left preserved intact here in NYC, formerly known as Old Merchant's House and Seabury Tredwell House.
This is a great way to see how folks used to live 100+ years ago in pre-wars (albeit well-off folks, not tenement dwellers.) People were TINY 100 years ago. And used gas-lit chandeliers. The kitchen and back yard are to die for.
This is the only 19th century family home preserved in its entirety, inside and out, in New York City. Built in 1832, this elegant red-brick and white-marble row house was lived in by the same family for almost 100 years. Visiting the museum gives you a glimpse of domestic life in the city in the 19th century.
