Join us online from the comfort of your home for a series of unique, in-depth tours of the Merchant’s House, preserved intact from the 19th century with the Tredwell family’s original furnishings and personal possessions. It’s an extraordinary up-close and personal experience of the Tredwell home you won’t want to miss –– behind the ropes and no stairs to climb!

Changing Tastes in 19th Century Furniture offers a close look at the Tredwell family furniture collection, examining pieces bought for this house, as well as those brought from their previous home. You’ll learn about both the tastes and values of mid-19th century New Yorkers and how growing international connections made lasting impact on design, trade, and international relations.
