A very compressed history of the Lambert’s Castle & Tower
In 1891, Catholina Lambert designed his family’s new home. An English Medieval Revival castle. Made of granite and sandstone costing nearly $500,000 and 200 feet above, on the cliff’s edge he built a 70 foot tall observation tower with views stretching from Bear Mountain NY to Sandy Hook NJ and beyond. On Feb. 15th, 1923, at age 89, Catholina died in his castle. Catholina was one of several of Paterson’s Silk Barons. Two years later the Passaic County Parks Commission, establishing the Garret Mountain Reservation, as a public park including the Castle, the Tower, their grounds, and the hundreds of acres of woodland beyond. The Tower and the Castle have both been restored and are currently open.
