Worked in 1832 and bought by trader Seabury Tredwell three years after the fact, this red-block chateau remains the most valid Federal house around. It’s as much about the city’s trade past as it is a feature of nineteenth-century very good quality household decorations, from the bronze gasoliers and marble mantelpieces to the exquisite parlor seats, ascribed to noted furniture originator Duncan Phyfe. Indeed, even the staggering call ringers for the workers work right up ’til today.
Since 2014 campaigners have been involved in an argument about the development of an eight-story inn nearby to the Merchant’s House, which preservationists dread could subvert the establishments of the old structure. Its status as a city, state, and government milestone has helped win an order meaning the engineers can’t work over six stories, however, campaigners consider this to be an unfilled triumph and keep on battling for an assurance that no development will occur. On the off chance that the engineers get their direction, the exhibition hall could close for at any rate two years during building works.
Many accept that the phantom of Gertrude Tredwell – Seabury’s most youthful youngster and the structure’s last occupant – frequents the old manor, showing up late in nighttimes and here and there at open occasions. At a Valentine’s Day show a couple of years back a few participants saw the shadow of a lady approach the entertainers and sit down in the parlor seats. Properly, the exhibition hall offers apparition visits after dull (as a rule once per month, barring December), just as talks, unique occasions and chronicled strolling voyages through NoHo.
