<![CDATA[Illustrated Lecture: Conserving the Merchant’s House Gaseliers]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/06/09/illustrated-lecture-conserving-the-merchants-house-gaseliers http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2015/06/09/illustrated-lecture-conserving-the-merchants-house-gaseliers Date: June 9, 2015

As well as being the first designated exterior landmark in Manhattan, the Merchant's House is one of only 115 interior landmarks in New York City (1981). A significant presence in the house's interior is a pair of gas chandeliers - possibly the oldest gaseliers remaining in situ in the northeast. Conservator Julie Baker speaks on her 2006-7 project of dismantling, conserving, researching, and re-mounting these unique lighting fixtures, and explains how they influenced themuseum's future interpretation plans.
