The Tredwell family lived at the Merchant’s House for almost 100 years. When Gertrude, the Tredwells’ eighth and final child, died in an upstairs bedroom in 1933, she left her home brimming with the family’s possessions from the 19th century. The Merchant’s House Museum’s collection comprises approximately 4,500 Tredwell objects.
Some of the pieces of furniture and household objects may not be familiar to you. What were they used for? What do they look like on the inside? What do they tell us about how the Tredwells lived?
You are invited Behind Closed Doors & Drawers for an intimate glimpse of 19th century domestic life in New York City.
