About Treasurer’s House

York Treasurer’s House is a stately home that is open to visitors. Dwarfed by the Minster opposite, the house is not always so easy to find. Therefore if you walk past the large red building (Minster School) and turn left you will find it easily. 

York Treasurer’s house resides around the back of the minister in Minster Yard.  This building was acquired by Frank Green in 1897 in order to create a lavish show home that impressed Edward VII. His passion for history helped to preserve not only this building but also other buildings in the city.  Minster Yard is where the minster gates are situated and there are also some quaint medieval buildings along this stretch. 

At the Treasurer’s House you can find out more about the demolition and restoration of lost houses of Yorkshire also how Frank Green created the Treasurer’s House.  You can also take a closer look at the collection inside the Treasurer’s House and view a series of short videos and learn about some of the fascinating stories that reside with the collection.  In addition, you can also view the attractive garden that adorns this remarkable structure. York Treasurer’s House is under the ownership of the National Trust.
