Date: Sundays, March 2, 9, 16, 23, and 30

Time: 1 p.m.

Location: Merchant's House Museum, 29 East Fourth Street (btwn Lafayette & Bowery)

Description: Join In this 45-minute walking tour of the neighborhood surrounding the Merchant's House, we'll explore the world of the Irish immigrants who worked as domestic servants for the Tredwells and other wealthy families of the Bond Street area. What did they do on their day off? Where did they shop? Go to church? How did they find employment when they first arrived? We'll explore all of these questions and see sites associated with a servant's life outside the walls of her employer's home. If you are of Irish ancestry, you'll leave with some resources to investigate your own family history. $10, $5 Students & Seniors, Free for MHM Members. Reservations not necessary.

St. Patrick's Day Celebration: A Tribute to the Tredwells' Irish Servants

Date: Sunday, March 16

Time: Tours at 12:30, 2, and 3:30 p.m.

Location: Merchant's House Museum, 29 East Fourth Street (btwn Lafayette & Bowery)

Description: Join us for a back-stairs look at the Merchant's House, "arguably the oldest intact site of Irish habitation in New York City" (Time Out New York). Come climb the narrow staircase to the just-restored fourth-floor servants' quarters and see where the Tredwells' four Irish servants lived and did some of their work. You'll learn why it would have been impossible to run a home like the Merchant's House without them. Included with regular admission; reservations not necessary.
