Lambert Castle Museum, Paterson, New Jersey

 

Lambert Castle Museum, Paterson, New Jersey is a landmark, castellated brick mansion overlooking the city of Paterson. As of mid 2022 the castle was undergoing renovation works and thus it was closed to the public indefinitely. 

As per the description of the castle's history on the museum's website ; 'Once a private residence, the building is fashioned after an English castle.  Catholina Lambert, an English immigrant who made his fortune in the silk industry, built the Castle in 1892-93.   He named it “Belle Vista.”   Many prominent individuals of that era, including President McKinley, visited the Lambert family in their luxurious residence.Once a private residence, the building is fashioned after an English castle.  Catholina Lambert, an English immigrant who made his fortune in the silk industry, built the Castle in 1892-93.   He named it “Belle Vista.”   Many prominent individuals of that era, including President McKinley, visited the Lambert family in their luxurious residence'.

In 1976 the New Jersey and National Registers of Historical Places awarded the Castle Landmark Designation.  Lambert Castle is now owned by the local municipality.
