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!

19th Century Domestic Lighting: 100 Years of Change presents an in-depth examination of the Tredwells’ lighting fixtures and what they tell us about evolving technologies and the continuing quest to illuminate the darkness.
