We'll gather in the 1850s kitchen for coffee and a focused overview of the landmark Merchant's House and its intact collection of more than 3,000 objects owned by the Tredwell family. We'll then tour the house, including the rarely seen bedrooms on the 3rd floor (now staff offices), even peek up into the attic and open locked doors … and more. From late Federal to Greek Revival; Duncan Phyfe to Rococo Revival; whale oil to gas to kerosene, you'll gain new insight and perspectives on these unique insider's tours, learning about changing period styles and technologies and how they reflect the attitudes and values of the merchant class in mid-19th century New York City. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=272386 Merchant's House Museum Merchant's House Museum
