Lambert Castle, Part 2

Lambert Castle interior


Last week I showed you some exteriors of Lambert Castle in Paterson, New Jersey.  

 

This week I will show you some of the lovely interiors of the castle. 

The stained glass window in the last photo was created in tribute to a Lambert daughter, who died when she was 24.

Despite their wealth, the Lambert family  suffered many tragedies.

Lambert Castle in Paterson, Part I

Lambert Castle, Paterson, New Jersey

Lambert Castle in Paterson, New Jersey has an interesting past. 

Paterson, New Jersey had many silk mills,  and was known as “The Silk City” in the 1800s and has a strong union history. 


Catholina Lambert owned one of the silk mills and built his home, then known as “Belle Vista” , on the side of Garret Mountain, which is part of First Watchung Mountain

From his home, he could see Paterson spreading out below him and New York City was in the distance.
