Event description

Description

Explore one of the most lavish mansions of the Hudson River Valley in a way no others have before.

Join New York Adventure Club for an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour at Lyndhurst Mansion, which is considered one of America’s finest Gothic Revival mansions, and an outstanding example of 19th-century landscape design.

Led by Lyndhurst's most veteran docent, our exploration of the former Jay Gould estate in Tarrytown, NY, will include:


  • The history of Lyndhurst Mansion and its former occupants including New York City mayor William Paulding, merchant George Merritt, and railroad tycoon Jay Gould
  • A walkthrough of notable first-floor rooms inside the mansion including Jay Gould’s private office and the sumptuous Victorian Dining Room
  • A visit to the second-floor decorative bedrooms, Tiffany and La Farge stained glass windows, and magnificent Grand Picture Gallery featuring its original collection of European paintings
  • A look at 'back-of-the-house' areas including the servants’ quarters, root cellar, kitchen, and 1911 laundry building.
  • A walk up the 5th-floor observatory tower for spectacular views of the lower Hudson Valley


Afterward, we'll have an opportunity to explore the grounds on our own, including the former greenhouse, private bowling alley, gardens, and horse stables.
