Lambert Castle in Paterson, Part 1 | Paterson, New Jersey

Lambert Castle, Paterson, New Jersey

Lambert Castle


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 labor and union history. 


Catholina Lambert owned one of the silk mills and built his home (known at "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.

To read about the history of the Castle check out the website of the Passaic County Historical Society.

 

UPDATE 2022: The Castle has been closed since late 2019 for 3 years of renovations

 

The COVID pandemic probably delayed things further.

 

You can check up on the progress of the renovations on their Facebook page.

 

Thanks for visiting New Jersey Memories!
