The CHV Explorers Outing to The Merchant's House Museum

We are excited to announce the launch of The Carnegie Hill Village Explorers, whose first outing was to The Merchant's House Museum.

The Carnegie Hill Village Explorers had their first outing to a lesser-known historic site in New York City with a trip to The Merchant’s House Museum.  The Merchant’s House was built in 1832 and purchased by Seabury Tredwell, a prosperous New York City hardware merchant, in 1835. The Tredwell family continued to live in the landmark late-Federal and Greek revival style row house for nearly 100 years.

The Explorers took a “culinary tour” which focused on the culinary customs of mid-19th century New York, including favorite foods, cooking methods, dining etiquette and entertaining.

They also visited four floors of period rooms furnished with the family’s original possessions – furniture, decorative objects, household goods, books, even their clothing.  They saw how a wealthy family and their four Irish servants lived in mid-19th century New York.
