    A Child’s View of Life in 19th Century New York

    Saturday, June 7, 3:30 p.m.

    29 East Fourth Street was home not only to the eight Tredwell children, but also to two young granddaughters. Come tour the house and learn what life was like for children (and adults) in the 1850s, from schoolwork and chores to games and play. Could you carry a bucket of coal up steep stairs? Do you have a calling card? A top hat? What, no hoop skirt? How did you take a bath? And penmanship really, really mattered. Best for children 8 to 12 years old. $15, one adult, one child. $20, one adult, two children (max.).
