A Tribute to the Treadwells' Irish Servants
New York's oldest preserved 19th-century house offers a tour of the fourth-floor servants' quarters, which were recently restored and repainted in their original colors. Families will learn about the daily successes and struggles of the Irish immigrants who worked as servants in the mid 19th century, and why it would have been impossible to run a home without them. Ages 6 and up.
