Lyndhurst, a Gothic Revival-style mansion designed by the renowned American architect A. J. Davis in 1838, served as the home to former New York City mayor William Paulding, merchant George Merritt, railroad tycoon Jay Gould, and also hundreds of servants and other employees and their families through the years.

The site reflects nearly 175 years of life on the Hudson River contained in 67 park-like acres that include 16 structures, such as a Lord & Burnham steel-framed Greenhouse complex and the oldest regulation bowling alley in the United States.

The site also features a collection of more than 4,000 objects, many highlighted in stained glass illuminated rooms filled with original pieces by Davis, Herter Brothers, and Tiffany, as well as paintings by Bouguereau, Gerome, and Daubigny. Rolling lawns and majestic trees enhance the picturesque landscape at this estate along the Hudson.

Lyndhurst is owned and operated by the National Trust for Historic Preservation.
