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 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.

If you can imagine it, you can felt it! During the workshop there will be discussions of the methods used throughout the history of cloth-making. Take home some homespun yarn or a felted charm.
