Completed in 1832, the Merchant?s House Museum is located at Bond Street, one of the most fashionable and affluent areas in New York City. It originally served as the family residence for Seabury Tredwell for over a century and today, visitors are still able to glimpse many of the Tredwells? original period furnishing and other personal artifacts of the family. Of the hundred or so historical homes in the city, the Merchant?s House Museum is the only intact family home from the 19th century that the public may still enjoy viewing. It?s one that can afford visitors a fascinating glimpse of how day-to-day living was done during the early and mid 19th century.

The architecture of the Merchant?s House Museum is just as impressive as its interior, boasting of a beautiful combination of Greek Revival and late Federal styles. Inside, interior highlights of the home include the marble mantelpieces with its sleek black and gold finishes and the 1830 gas chandeliers ? a state-of-the-art invention in those days ? that hung from thirteen-foot ceilings.
