The experience

Experience the most sumptuous house of the Hudson Valley set in 67 landscaped acres on the Hudson River, with more than 17 rooms open to the public and filled with rare collections of original A. J. Davis furniture, French 19th century painting, magnificent Tiffany windows and Herter Brothers furnishings.

Tours introduce visitors to the lifestyles of the New York politicians and Wall Street giants that made Lyndhurst their home, including Jay Gould, the robber baron considered the most hated man in America, and his two daughters, the philanthropist Helen Gould and Anna, the Duchess of Talleyrand, who took her fortune to Europe and in Downtown Abbey style, married two aristocrats. The extensive landscape harbors numerous outbuildings and rare specimen trees and is located on the Croton Aqueduct Park.

The Visitor Center opens at 10 a.m. and tours operate on a first-come, first-served basis. The last tour of the day is at 3 pm. Lyndhurst may be open for holiday Mondays or other special programs. For more information, call 914-631-4481 or visit www.lyndhurst.org
