Tonight, we celebrated the dames who went the whole nine yards to serve their country in WWI, at a time when they were still fighting for their right to vote. Thank you to all who came out for our new exhibit reception! “New York Women, War & Patriotism” on view thru Sept 9.
This beautiful garden has some serious history....
It’s part of The Merchant’s House Museum in NYC.
Once known as The Seabury Tredwell House, The Merchant’s House Museum in the East Village is the only surviving example of a 19th century family home in New York City.
Built by the hatter Joseph Brewster in 1831, the house was transformed into a museum in 1936 and subsequently became one of the first 20 buildings designated a city landmark under the 1965 NYC landmarks law.
In addition to showcase beautifully furnished period rooms, the museum presents many performances, lectures, and special events throughout the year.
Ongoing research, documentation, and conservation techniques insures that visitors to The Merchant’s House Museum get a unique window into what day to day life was like for an upper middle class New York family in the 1800s.
