Lingering in the Shadows: Spirits of the Merchant’s House, Past & Present


Date: October 29, 2020

The occurrences, inexplicable and unsettling, began immediately after Gertrude, the last surviving member of the Tredwell family, died in the house, in 1933. They haven’t stopped.

We invite you to venture into the dark and ghostly shadows of history – virtually, from the safety of your home – to hear true stories of the strange and chilling happenings over the Museum’s eight decades; the methods and findings of past paranormal investigations; and the startling results of current research conducted during the six months the museum was closed due to COVID-19. The house was empty – or was it?

Is the Merchant’s House – “Manhattan’s Most Haunted House,” according to The New York Times – really haunted? Come hear the evidence and decide for yourself.

Walking Tour of 19th Century NoHo: A Century of Change


Date: November 8, 2020

Join us for a socially-distanced journey back in time to the elite ‘Bond Street area,’ home to wealthy merchant families like the Tredwells. You’ll see how the neighborhood surrounding the Merchant’s House evolved from a refined and tranquil residential enclave into a busy commercial and cultural center during the 19th century.

Stops include Colonnade Row, home to the Astors, Delanos, and Vanderbilts; the Astor Library, now the Public Theater; Tompkins Market, where the Tredwells bought their food; and 31 Bond Street, the site of the gruesome (and still unsolved!) 1857 murder of Dr. Harvey Burdell, a sure sign of a changing neighborhood.

The tour lasts 1 hour and begins outside the Merchant's House Museum.

For your safety: Capacity strictly limited to 6 participants; masks are required. If you have a cough, fever, or other symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home. We are happy to transfer your tickets to a future tour.
