# 70 of 111 (71/111 in book) — Merchant’s House — Wealthy hardware merchant, Seabury Tredwell purchased this East 4th Street townhome in 1835, where he and his wife, Eliza raised their 8 children. Gertrude Tredwell, the last born, spent her entire life in the merchant home, from 1840-1933. She preserved the home, with the original furniture and Greek Revival style decor. The only updates Gertrude added were electricity and indoor plumbing. Prior to indoor plumbing, women would take diuretics and fast days before parties, in order to avoid the embarrassing trip to the privy. After Gertrude Tredwell died in 1933, a cousin of the family took over the family home, made needed repairs, and opened the home as a museum in 1936. The dress pictured here was one of Eliza Tredwell’s summer, daytime dresses. The Tredwell Merchant House is a must see National Historic Landmark, with its numerous 19th century possessions, including furniture, oil lamps, and dresses. @merchantshouse @our_nyc_ @history @111places

Tuesday late afternoon in the most humid and hot weather imaginable, I had the pleasure of attending the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation’s visit and walking tour of townhouses built during the Classical Age of Architecture in NYC. The Merchants house c1830 was our starting point. Then a reception in their lovely back garden. Thank you #Gvshp #merchantshouse and all the volunteers who made it so lovely. Heidi and Mathew, my special thanks!
29 East 4th Street. Do visit; it has quite a unique story to tell.

Nearly 200 years old, The Merchant’s House in New York is considered one of the finest surviving examples of architecture from the period, as well as “Manhattan’s Most Haunted House”. The Tredwell family lived in this house for nearly 100 years. Some say they never left.

Many believe it is Gertrude Tredwell, in particular, who is watching over her family home. Born in an upstairs bedroom in 1840, the youngest of the Tredwells’ eight children, Gertrude never married and lived her entire life here until she died, at the age of 93, in 1933. She was the last member of the family to occupy the house. •••••• “Sarah Ann Tredwell's 1872 silk wedding dress made in Paris. She was a cousin of the Tredwell’s and had lived in the house with them for some time. Definitely my favorite room in the house other than the parlor downstairs. (Part of Treadwell Brides: changing wedding traditions in the 19th century exhibit at Merchant’s House).” 📸: @themourningmoon 🖤Next time I’m in NYC I’m DEFINITELY visiting this beautiful museum. ••• If you’re in the area, they hold candle light ghost tours, as well as special October ”Spirited” events, such as: “A Good Death: 19th Century Lessons in Dying Well”, “Sacred to the Memory: 1865 Funeral Reenactment”, Chant Macabre: Songs from the Crypt”, and more! Check out their spooky events at MerchantsHouse.org! -Dixie (@witchvoid)

“Carrying bouquet, and handkerchief, and gloves,
Proud of her height as when she lived, she moves
With all the careless and high-stepping grace,
And the extravagant courtesan's thin face.

Was slimmer waist e'er in a ball-room wooed?
Her floating robe, in royal amplitude,
Falls in deep folds around a dry foot, shod
With a bright flower-like shoe that gems the sod.

The swarms that hum about her collar-bones
As the lascivious streams caress the stones,
Conceal from every scornful jest that flies,
Her gloomy beauty; and her fathomless eyes...”

-Charles Baudelaire, part of The Dance Of Death (Danse Macabre) It is part of a collection of poems belonging to his book, The Flowers of Evil, written in 1857, a pivotal book to the symbolist movement.
I found many different translations for this poem because I do not own the book so I’m not sure which is the most accurate.
