I took the walking tour today of Lambert Castle as it was the last day it was decorated for Christmas. It was a very nice tour and the house was beautifully decorated for the holidays with Christmas trees and garland all over the place. The house also serves as the Passaic Historical Society as well, so there is much more... More

Visited the castle during the Christmas boutique. Many of the furnishings are in storage at this time but the grandeur of the mansion is evident. Check out the unusual spoon collection down one of the side corridors. We visited the tower in the park up the hill from the castle. The tower is closed this time of year but it... More

Lambert Castle, built in 1893 by a silk baron named Lambert is a 3 story building in the style of an English castle complete with a tower but without a moat is a great place to visit especially during the holidays. The entire structure is decorated for Christmas with many trees & ornaments all of which are for sale. There... More

We were not able to get into castle. The open hours drop significantly Starting Sept. We did get a glimpse of the view from there, which on a clear day would be of NYC. Unfortunately, it was very hazy. Would recommend this only in combination with Paterson Falls National Park visit.

Interesting and unique "castle", home of the Lamberts - visit at least once. The castle has an interesting sale around Christmas time.

This magnificent mansion once housed one of America's greatest private art collections. It is one of the few surviving Paterson tycoon mansions with a great view of the once great industrial city.

Out of the three floors, the first floor has period furnishings and half of the second floor has Paterson artifacts. I wasn't overly impressed on a whole. I've been to quite a few castles like this in the US and Canada which are much better. There's only a couple of pieces of furniture and art in the castle that are... More

The Paterson Historical Society has really spent a good bit of time restoring and maintaining this property. It is located on the outskirts of Paterson provides a glimpse into the lifestyle of the Paterson elite.
