Charming castle with an endearing history on Garret Mountain. Catholina Lambert, a prominent silk mill owner, built this architectural gem in 1892. The stained glass windows and the dining room are beautiful. The grounds are gorgeous, and it is a worthwhile hour if you are nearby.

My family (parents, myself, my 11 yr-old son, my twenty-something brother) and I visited Lambert Castle during the winter holiday season. At Christmastime, the staff of Lambert Castle decorates the castle's interior with holiday decorations (most are for sale). Every room has a beautiful tree and features different themed items for sale (decorations, foodstuffs, furniture, knick-knacks, etc.) During this sales... More

Lambert Castle is the beautiful home of C Lambert who made a fortune in the silk industry. It is located on Garrett Mountain and has lovely grounds and beautiful views. Built in 1892 it was modeled after an English estate The home contains interesting collections of art and folk art. The docents were great story tellers.

This castle is fascinating with history. It tells the story of when silk industry was in Paterson. It's named after Lambert who was the founder of the silk business. The castle itself is amazing with its architect . And everything else you find in a castle. The views from the castle is awesome!

What a find, right in the heart of Paterson. Beautiful architecture, stained glass windows and lighting, carved wood, ironwork, marble all over, centuries-old parquet floors. On the second floor, the history of the silk business in NJ and its founder, Lambert, as well as the major strike that wiped out the industry in NJ. Oh, the Guiness record-winning largest spoon...

Lambert Castle as the name implies has the look and feel of a castle. It was built in 1892 by Catholina Lambert who owned a silk mill in the City of Paterson. Mr. Lambert's design is reminiscent of the castles in Great Britain. After Lambert's death in 1923, his family sold the building to the City of Paterson, which sold... More

I realize when I went, a lot of the Asa were closed due to re model work and renovation. They need the observation tower addressed sooner than later. It was a good trip. Took kids and their friends...7 and 11 in age, all girls. They like the spoon display and the art work. The castle itself is impressive. That is... More
