Exhibition – Death, Mourning, and the Hereafter in Mid-19th Century New York


Date: October 21, 2019

Including 19th-century mourning attire and accessories from the Tredwell Collection

In March 1865, family patriarch Seabury Tredwell died in his upstairs bedroom; his wake and funeral were held in the double parlor, shrouded in black crepe. Grief was not unique to the Tredwell family that year. The Civil War had ended, with more than 600,000 dead, and President Abraham Lincoln’s assassination plunged the nation into a period of unprecedented public mourning. The overwhelming sense of grief and loss led to heightened interest in Spiritualism, as survivors attempted to contact their dearly departed through seances and mediums.

Poignant scenes throughout the house explore 19th-century customs surrounding death, a time, unlike today, when death and mourning were pervasive and integral parts of life; dying and funerals took place at home; rituals of mourning helped the bereaved cope with the ever-present anguish of death; and Spiritualism offered hope of a Hereafter.

Pay your last respects at Seabury Tredwell’s deathbed upstairs, then join in the mourning in the double parlor set with a coffin for his wake and funeral. And, in “Manhattan’s Most Haunted House,” discover why our fascination with spirits, ghosts, and the Hereafter endures to this day. (If you see something, say something!)

New this year! On Saturday afternoons, the newly-widowed Eliza Tredwell (portrayed by a costumed interpreter) will greet guests and answer questions about life and death in the 19th century.

Included with regular admission; reservations not required.

Gracie Book Club Presents: Erika L. Sánchez's I am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter


Date: October 23, 2019

Join the Gracie Book Club and Author Erika L. Sánchez to discuss her Young Adult novel, I am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter, New York Times bestseller and finalist for the National Book Award. Jacqueline M. Ebanks, Executive Director of the New York City Commission on Gender Equity and lifelong advocate for economic, gender, and racial equity, will moderate.

New Yorkers are invited to participate in the conversation whether or not they have read the book. While reservations are encouraged, they are not required.

  • Reserve your tickets.
  • Time: Doors open at 5:30 p.m., discussion begins at 6:00 p.m. and ends promptly at 7:00 p.m.

People wishing to participate in the discussion on social media should use the hashtag #GracieBookClub. For those who cannot attend the event, it will be streamed live on the First Lady's YouTube channel, FLO NYC. Readers of all ages are also invited to sign up for the Gracie Book Club at nyc.gov/graciebookclub to stay informed about discussion topics, further reading suggestions, live Club gatherings, and podcasts.

"This season the Gracie Book Club explores the pervasive culture of shame that surrounds mental illness. The books we will read together offer an opportunity for each of us to challenge our biases and stereotypes about mental health care through the power of storytelling. Readers can use this knowledge to become stewards of their own mental health and healers in their community." — First Lady Chirlane McCray

Of the selection, Conservancy Executive Director Paul Gunther said, "Ms. Sanchez 's best-selling novel fits this season's mental health theme ideally and we are honored to include it. The struggle of the endearing young protagonist, Julia, in the wake of her older sister's tragic accidental death describes the impact of depression amidst family grief and strife compounded by the added challenges of an immigrant household." He added, "Whether you read the book prior to our Club gathering of after hearing from the National Book Award finalist author, the story of this Mexican- American family will spawn hope in the face of loss."

Programming at the Gracie Mansion Conservancy is aimed at highlighting the history of New York City, and at making Gracie Mansion, the People’s House, more accessible to New Yorkers. Programs are listed on the Conservancy’s website, nyc.gov/graciemansion, and free guided tours of Gracie Mansion are available every Monday. Interested individuals can sign up for a tour at nyc.gov/gracietour.

In the 19th century, death and funerals took place at home. Join us in the Tredwells’ double parlor veiled in black crepe as we recreate the 1865 funeral of family patriarch Seabury Tredwell and explore the customs surrounding death in 19th century New York City.

Exhibition – Death, Mourning, and the Hereafter in Mid-19th Century New York


Date: October 27, 2019

Including 19th-century mourning attire and accessories from the Tredwell Collection

In March 1865, family patriarch Seabury Tredwell died in his upstairs bedroom; his wake and funeral were held in the double parlor, shrouded in black crepe. Grief was not unique to the Tredwell family that year. The Civil War had ended, with more than 600,000 dead, and President Abraham Lincoln’s assassination plunged the nation into a period of unprecedented public mourning. The overwhelming sense of grief and loss led to heightened interest in Spiritualism, as survivors attempted to contact their dearly departed through seances and mediums.

Poignant scenes throughout the house explore 19th-century customs surrounding death, a time, unlike today, when death and mourning were pervasive and integral parts of life; dying and funerals took place at home; rituals of mourning helped the bereaved cope with the ever-present anguish of death; and Spiritualism offered hope of a Hereafter.

Pay your last respects at Seabury Tredwell’s deathbed upstairs, then join in the mourning in the double parlor set with a coffin for his wake and funeral. And, in “Manhattan’s Most Haunted House,” discover why our fascination with spirits, ghosts, and the Hereafter endures to this day. (If you see something, say something!)

New this year! On Saturday afternoons, the newly-widowed Eliza Tredwell (portrayed by a costumed interpreter) will greet guests and answer questions about life and death in the 19th century.

Included with regular admission; reservations not required.

In March 1865, family patriarch Seabury Tredwell died in his upstairs bedroom; his wake and funeral were held in the double parlor, shrouded in black crepe. Grief was not unique to the Tredwell family that year. The Civil War had ended, with more than 600,000 dead, and President Abraham Lincoln’s assassination plunged the nation into a period of unprecedented public mourning. The overwhelming sense of grief and loss led to heightened interest in Spiritualism, as survivors attempted to contact their dearly departed through seances and mediums.

Poignant scenes throughout the house explore 19th-century customs surrounding death, a time, unlike today, when death and mourning were pervasive and integral parts of life; dying and funerals took place at home; rituals of mourning helped the bereaved cope with the ever-present anguish of death; and Spiritualism offered hope of a Hereafter.

Pay your last respects at Seabury Tredwell’s deathbed upstairs, then join in the mourning in the double parlor set with a coffin for his wake and funeral. And, in “Manhattan’s Most Haunted House,” discover why our fascination with spirits, ghosts, and the Hereafter endures to this day. (If you see something, say something!)

New this year! On Saturday afternoons, the newly-widowed Eliza Tredwell (portrayed by a costumed interpreter) will greet guests and answer questions about life and death in the 19th century.

Included with regular admission; reservations not required.
