The Tredwell family owned what would become the Merchant's House Museum for more than 100 years. Opening on January 19, this exhibition showcases rarely seen objects from the original Tredwell collections, including a foot stove, quilts, a muff, hand-knit ‘joint warmers,’ and a crocheted capelette, all items the family used to (try to) keep warm during the cold winter months.

In the 19th century, there was no escaping the cold. Even with brisk fires burning, water froze in wash bowls, ink froze in wells, and wine in their bottles. People did what little they could to keep the cold at bay, but interior temperatures in the 19th century were well below today’s standard 68 degrees.

Thursday, Noon to 8 p.m.
Friday – Monday, Noon to 5 p.m.
