As well as being the first designated exterior landmark in Manhattan, the Merchant’s House is one of only 117 interior landmarks in New York City (1981). A significant presence in the Merchant House’s interior is a pair of gas chandeliers in the Greek Revival double parlor – possibly the oldest gaseliers remaining in situ in the Northeast.

Conservator Julie Baker speaks on her 2006-7 project of dismantling, conserving, researching and documenting, and re-mounting these unique lighting fixtures with state-of-the-art fiber-optic illumination.

<![CDATA[St. Patrick’s Day: A Tribute to the Tredwells’ Irish Servants with Bridget Murphy]]> http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2016/03/17/st-patricks-day-a-tribute-to-the-tredwells-irish-servants-with-bridget-murphy http://www.nycgovparks.org/events/2016/03/17/st-patricks-day-a-tribute-to-the-tredwells-irish-servants-with-bridget-murphy Date: March 17, 2016

Guided Tours at 12:30 p.m., 2 p.m., 4 p.m., and 6:30 p.m.

Join us for a back-stairs tour of the Merchant’s House and explore the world 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). In the kitchen, you’ll meet 19-year-old Bridget Murphy, who worked for the Tredwells in the 1850s. What did the servants do on their day off? Where did they shop? Where did they go to to church? How did they find employment when they first arrived? Bridget will tell you why it would have been impossible to run a home like the Merchant’s House without her.

Included with General Admission. Reservations not required.

Using the works of early and mid-19th century authors that Madame Jumel may have read we will use black out techniques to create a new work of art and poetry.

Black out poetry involves selecting words from a printed page of a book to create a new poem, all the other words on the page are blacked out. The methods and designs of the black out process can range from simple to ornate.

Recommended for children ages 6 and above, and led by local artist Trish Mayo, the workshop will teach participants how to create a black out design around words chosen as their poem. Participants will create a work of art to take home.

Free with museum admission. Advanced registration is recommended. To register, please email education@morrisjumel.org.
