A Tribute to the Tredwells’ Irish Servants with Bridget Murphy
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Join us for a back-stairs tour and experience the Merchant’s House through the eyes of the Irish immigrants who worked as domestic servants for the Tredwell family. You’ll climb the narrow staircase to the fourth-floor servants’ quarters and see where the Tredwells’ four Irish servants lived and did some of their work, “arguably the oldest intact site of Irish habitation in New York City” (Time Out New York).
1 p.m. – 4 p.m. You’ll meet Tredwell servant Bridget Murphy, who will play traditional Irish airs on the harp and entertain guests with her singing. She’ll also tell you the many reasons why it would have been impossible to run a home like the Merchant’s House without her. Included with museum admission. No reservations.
Venue: Merchants House Museum
29 E. 4th St.
