Raffle & Lecture: Win a night in a haunted house

Home to a prosperous merchant clan for almost 100 years, seven Tredwell family members died in what is now the Merchant’s House Museum. Shadowy silhouettes, music from an unplayable piano and face-to-face conversations between the living and the dead are standard practice here. Since 2007, paranormal investigator Dan Sturges and his team have been granted exclusive access to the Merchant’s House.

The lecture “Investigating Manhattan’s Most Haunted House” is your chance to hear about the most extraordinary aspects of Sturges Paranormal’s ongoing investigation (featuring photographic and audio evidence never before shared with the public). After a Q&A session, the evening concludes with a raffle drawing. The winner, and a guest, will accompany Sturges and his team on a future Merchant’s House paranormal investigation.

Sat., May 14, 7pm, at the Merchant’s House Museum (29 E. Fourth Street, btw. Lafayette & Bowery). Lecture tickets are $20. Raffle tickets are $5 each, or 3 for $10. To purchase, visit Also visit
