Lyndhurst was designed by architect Alexander Jackson Davis in the gothic revival style in 1842. In 1864, Lyndhurst’s owner hired Davis to more than double its size.
In 1880 Jay Gould purchased the estate and renamed it Lyndhurst.
Gould added the large, gothic style greenhouse designed by the firm of Lord and Burnham; its cast-iron structure still stands.
Today Lyndhurst is owned by Historic Hudson Valley and is open for tours.
