Description

Built in 1832, the late-Federal and Greek Revival house on the western edge of the East Village is considered one of the finest surviving examples of the architecture of the period. Three floors and eight period rooms display the possessions of the wealthy merchant family that lived in the house for 100 years — from 1835 to 1933 — including their furnishings, decorative arts, and personal items. The 19th-century garden is also open for viewing.
