This 1719 Huguenot town house originally housed a prosperous family of weavers, before becoming home to waves of immigrants, including Polish, Irish and Jewish families, the last of which built a synagogue in the back garden in 1869. In keeping with the house’s multicultural past, it’s now home to a museum of immigration and diversity, with carefully considered exhibits aimed at adults and children. The house urgently needs repair and so opens infrequently (usually no more than a dozen times a year); check the website. Donations welcome.
