This museum is not in a location like most others in NYC because people actually lived here. At the Merchant’s House Museum
, viewers follow the story of the Tredwell family. Seabury Tredwell bought this home in 1835, and his descendants lived there until his daughter, Gertrude, died in 1933. In 1936, it opened as a museum, and in 1965, it was designed a landmark. While this museum is designated to celebrate the historical life of this incredible family, it is also a hotbed for those who love the paranormal — as many have claimed to see, hear, and smell Gertrude’s ghost. Beware, NYC.
