The Merchant’s House Museum reopen to visitors on Saturday (tomorrow!)


The Merchant's House on Fourth Street reopens to visitors — by appointment only — tomorrow (Sept. 19!).

This will be the first time that visitor have been allowed inside the landmarked building since mid-March. For now, the four-floor house will only be available for guided tours on Saturdays and Sundays from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. Tour capacity is limited to five guests from the same household group/bubble/etc. Check out this link for more details.
The Merchant’s House, between the Bowery and Lafayette, is the only 19-century family home in New York City preserved intact on the inside and out. 

More history: "Built in 1832 and home to a prosperous merchant family, the Tredwells, and their Irish servants for almost 100 years, it remains complete with the family’s original furnishings, household objects, clothing, and personal memorabilia."

The Merchant House is a city (and national) treasure! If you've never been, it's well worth a visit. It's so much more than a preserved house - there is so much history here and the story if the Treadwell family is fascinating. They always do something special for Halloween as well.

No thanks. That house is haunted and scary AF.

i always walked by there hoping to hear the piano being played (by the ghost), but it never happened.
