Lyndhurst is America’s greatest example of Nineteenth century Gothic Revival architecture. Designed by Alexander Jackson Davis, arguably the foremost architect of his day, Lyndhurst was home in succession to a two-time mayor of New York City, a successful merchant, and the infamous robber baron Jay Gould, whose fascinating daughters remained in the house through the mid-Twentieth century. Now a site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Lyndhurst is set along the Hudson River on beautifully landscaped grounds. It is worth a lingering visit.
Grounds are open daily dawn to dusk
Mansion is open for tours Fridays through Sundays beginning May 4. See website for tour schedules.
- Program Description
- Lyndhurst's programs are designed to fit your curriculum and the National and New York State Social Studies and Language Arts Standards. The New York State Social Studies Resource Guide with Core Curriculum serves as the concept resource for all of our site tours. Objects and primary source documents are presented so that students can make inferences and draw conclusions. During our programs, they will be practicing the same skills needed for the New York State Social Studies exam, answering constructed response questions and DBQ'S. Our guides are trained to serve as resources rather than lecturers. We also believe that humor provides a safe, friendly environment conducive for learning.
