Paulding's 'Knoll' vs. Merritt's 'Lyndenhurst'....do you prefer the smaller country villa or the larger, grander, and expanded Lyndhurst? We love them both!⁣

We were having some fun utilizing architect A.J. Davis' original 1838 watercolor rendering of Paulding's 'Knoll' to visualize what the first iteration of the house looked like over what we know the mansion is today. Since Davis designed both versions, it is pretty seamless!⁣

We posted this yesterday on our Instagram (@lyndhurst_mansion), but people are enjoying it so much there we decided to share it here on Facebook too!

Once upon a time, Lyndhurst had two Frederick William MacMonnies 'Pan of Rohallion' fountain figures on the grounds. One was located in the front lawn sitting area and one was located in front of the central entrance to the Greenhouse; both were lost through the years.⁣

Recently, we were able to acquire a singular 'Pan' figure and hope to reinstall it on the grounds! In this historic image, you can see it installed in front of the Gould Greenhouse. In the meantime, keep an eye out for Pan when you take a mansion tour!⁣

Sunset Jazz is back!

Every Thursday from July 8th through August 26th at 6:30 pm, plan on enjoying the evening from the Lyndhurst Bowling Alley lawn. Thanks to Jazz Forum for setting up these great concerts!

We are partnering with Geordanes and My Sherry &more Inc.. to provide picnic dinners and wine for Jazz attendees this year. You can find the menu on our website and have it ready and waiting for you when you arrive. Just bring your own blankets and chairs!

The concerts are always free, but we do charge a grounds access fee to help us cover the cost of garbage removal and staffing for these concerts. You can purchase ahead of time this year for expedited entry at the gate.

Visit our website to read the line-up and mark your calendars!

Welcome back, everyone! Tours and Grounds admission start up again on Friday, June 18th. ⁣

If you've been waiting to get into the mansion, wait no longer! The Mansion will be open for tours starting July 2nd. Tickets are on sale now. Purchase your tickets ahead of time from our website because they will sell out!⁣

The Mansion will contain exhibits of our dog-related collections that were set up for the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, including a fabulous dining table set with hunting dogs. We also have the Gould Cup for St Bernard dogs, the Pekingese Cup, and the painting 'Haunt of the Woodcock: Sensation and Bang Bang' (1886) by John Martin Tracy. All of these are on loan from the fantastic Museum of the Dog through the end of July.⁣

Yesterday was Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show's Press Event! We got to see examples of the 19th-century breeds affiliated with Lyndhurst’s history of dog ownership with the Gould Family (Pug, St. Bernard, and Pointer), but also the Westminster debut breeds for this year (the Barbet, the Biewer Terrier, the Belgian Laekenois, and the Dogo Argentino)!⁣

TONIGHT, 7/22 at 7:30pm With everything that's going on in our school system and board of ed meetings lately, the community would like to send a clear and cohesive message that the we support the NYS Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education Framework, DEI initiatives, and CRT (both culturally relevant teaching and critical race theory). In order to do that, we are using the Zinn Education Project's Pledge to Teach the Truth Campaign. The goal is to sign the Zinn pledge and take a photo at a historically significant site and write or record a statement of WHY we support schools and teachers that promote these initiatives. Be sure to use the hashtag #TeachTruth when posting on social media. If you are unable to participate tonight we welcome you to do it as soon as you get a chance and send in your pledge to [email protected]

HI!
I'm not sure if its been stated yet or not, but I was just curious what is being build along the road behind the stables leading toward the river?
I would love to here one day!!!
We had a nice day visiting. Thank you :)
We were fortunate to see this bewitching gem!
Met the kindest soul on my way in this morning. Bob was so friendly, kind, informative, and sweet. Bob really made this trip special!!
“Castles In The Air” If you ever find yourself in Tarrytown, New York, be sure to take a few hours to visit the magnificent Lyndhurst Mansion. I highly recommend also taking the tour of the mansion house. I can’t think of too many better places to spend a sunny afternoon, especially in the spring or fall.
We will be visiting the second weekend of October and would like to see the watershed exhibit. It states that you have to purchase a grounds pass to do that but I only see September listed for tickets. Will those be available for October?
Question. This is a candid shot taken during the filming of "House of Dark Shadows" back in 1970. I've been trying to place where this was taken. To me in looks like this part of the kitchen, as the other part with the cabinets on that side wouldn't make sense. I know the production used the kitchen and basement area as a makeup space. There is some sort of workbench with drawers on the left in the old photo that isn't there now. Any opinions?
Are you having daily tours at this time?
