Venue Description: Lyndhurst, a historic site of the National Trust, is a must-see for those interested in art and architecture from the past. This 67-acre estate is one of the great domestic landmarks in America and filled with 19th-century architecture, arts, and landscape design. It is located in Tarrytown, not far from Washington Irving's Sunnyside, and you can detect the historic and aesthetic traits that these two venues share. Walk the Croton Aqueduct Trail from Lyndhurst to West Sunnyside Lane (Lyndhurst and Sunnyside will also be linked by a pathway along the riverfront soon) and enjoy kayaking on the river in the warm summer months.

Lyndhurst was originally designed in 1838 in the Gothic Revival style by Alexander Jackson Davis, who also designed most of the furniture and later doubled the size of the estate. Jay Gould, the prototypical robber baron, purchased the property in 1880, added a greenhouse in the Gothic style, and renamed it Lyndhurst. He hired the Herter Brothers to redecorate and they added many paintings that are still present today. Ferdinand Mangold is responsible for the "garden-esque" landscape, which most notably features spectacular specimen trees.
