The East Village’s Merchant’s House Museum on 29 East Fourth Street is a fantastic place for history buffs and fashionistas alike to visit. The Merchant’s House Museum, formerly known as the Old Merchant’s House and the Seabury Tredwell House, is the only nineteenth-century family home in New York City that’s still intact inside and out. And this piece of preserved history is right here in the East Village!
Its upcoming exhibition, “The Changing Silhouette of 19th Century Fashion: The Decade of the 1830s,” opens Thursday, July 20 — couture fans will drool at the fashions and history buffs will love the exhibits. And there’s more: every Thursday evening in July, they do “Summer Evenings in the Garden” with no reservation needed!
