The 1865 funeral of Seabury Tredwell in the Merchant’s House Museum’s is just one of the fall events that are sure to give a sense of the more somber traditions of the past.
An Exhibition: A Mid-19th Century House in Mourning is on display through Nov. 11. Seabury Tredwell’s funeral is recreated in the parlors as the Museum explores mid-19th century mourning customs. Ghost Tours of the Merchant’s House take place on October 29 & 30 with a special Ghost story telling Halloween Evening.
And perhaps the highlight, Sunday’s re-enactment of Seabury Tredwell’s Funeral followed by a casket-walk to New York City Marble Cemetery where Mr. Tredwell was temporarily interred. MORE
