As the only family home in New York City's vast metropolis to remain preserved both internally and externally, the Merchant's House Museum is a heritage treasure trove waiting to be discovered. Located on East Fourth St, the National Historic Landmark is not only a safeguarded building aesthetically, but through exhibitions and an array of programs, the building exists to educate about the era in which it was built, the lives of its inhabitants, the Tredwell family and the original contents provide a rare insight into a time long gone. Erected in 1832 close to the historic Washington Square, the picturesque home and garden is open to visitors from Thursdays to Mondays with group tours available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. As champions of anything remotely antique, the Merchant's House Museum is a Cockpit USA favorite!
