About Lambert Castle Museum

Built in 1892 by silk magnate Catholina Lambert, Lambert Castle (originally Belle Vista) is a late Victorian-era mansion with design elements peculiar to English/European prototypes. On November 2, 1925, it was passed from private ownership when it was purchased by the city of Paterson, along with 53 acres at a total cost of $125,000. Three years later, on November 14, 1928, the Castle and surrounding acreage was purchased for $219,332.18 by the Passaic County Park Commission, an autonomous government agency.

Lambert Castle was restored in accordance with an intensively prepared Historic Structures Report (HSR) and Preservation Plan. The HSR was issued on January 22, 1990. The restored building reopened for public visitation on September 24, 2000.T
he Castle is home to the Passaic County Historical Society's museum and archives.

The museum's changing exhibits and furnishings reflect the local history of Passaic County. Visitors will experience a self-guided tour through this historic house, with both period rooms and historical exhibits.
