About the Event


On behalf of the National Arts Club, the New York Landmarks Conservancy cordially invites you to:


The Merchant’s House Museum – An Insider’s Visit


The Merchant’s House Museum on East 4th Street in Manhattan, recently rated in the top 3% of all sites to visit in New York, is a unique survivor of the antebellum city. The house is intact with the Tredwell Family possessions, who for nearly 100 years occupied it and were determined to keep their home “exactly as Papa wanted it.”

Anthony Bellov, acclaimed for his in-depth knowledge of the house and its collections, explores the Museum in a way no visitor ever experiences. He’ll open doors and drawers and explore overlooked features that tell us much about the house, the era, the residents and the servants who made it all possible. This amazing survivor has much to show and tell, if only we know what to look and listen for.
