Summer Nights in the Garden


Join St. George’s Society on August 9th for an exclusive look into the history of New York City’s very own Merchant’s House Museum, Manhattan’s “best preserved” (The New York Times) 19th-century home.

Built in 1832, Merchant’s House was 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.

Learn about the domestic life of this prosperous merchant family and their four Irish servants during the mid-19th century—a time when New York City transformed from seaport to thriving metropolis.

Enjoy complimentary wine, beer and light hors d’oeuvres in the Museum’s private garden and guided tours of the House.

Admission is $20 per person to be paid in cash upon arrival.

Event begins at 6pm. We encourage you to arrive on time to take part in the exclusive tours being offered to St. George’s Society members and friends.
