Lyndhurst Mansion Tours, Holiday Shows, & Theater

Perched across 67-acres along the coast of the Hudson River in Tarrytown, NY, this 1838 Gothic Revival-style mansion signifies over 175 years of significant American history. Home to three influential families over the years, each family played its part in making the mansion what it is today. In 1961, the last tenants, Anna Gould, Duchess of Talleyrand and Princess de Sagan, donated the estate in memory of her parents to the National Trust for Historic Preservation upon her death. Built in 1838, explore the evolution of this opulent landmark through guided tours of 19 elaborately decorated rooms in the mansion's interior and around the manicured grounds.
 
Stroll through the recently restored bowling alley, multiple kitchens, laundry room, majestic landscapes complete with rose gardens and a conservatory, and the observation tower which overlooks the widest part of the lower Hudson River and the Manhattan skyline. Filled with a vast collection of art, antiques, and elegant furniture, the castle has relatively remained intact over the centuries.
