I don’t know how many castles there are in the United States, but the one above is in Paterson, NJ. It’s name is Lambert Castle. (Click the link for more info.) Paterson is my hometown and I have visited the castle many times. When I was a youth the tower at the top of the mountain was open to the public and I explored there. Having been to Dover and Windsor Castles in England, I don’t think of Lambert Castle as a castle but simply as a rich man’s home. While it doesn’t compare in size, scope or purpose to the fortresses in Great Britain, it’s still an interesting part of New Jersey history.
