Rose Day will be celebrated at Lyndhurst on Sunday, June 3rd, from 12 - 3pm, in our historic rose garden. Helen Gould, eldest daughter of Jay Gould and resident of Lyndhurst for over fifty years, introduced the Rose Garden to the property in 1911. While she made few significant changes to the mansion after her father's death, she shared his love of horticulture and botany and honored his legacy in her continued improvements to the 67-acre landscape and gardens. Originally planted entirely in shades of pink, the Rose Garden has evolved over time to a profusion of color and variety, all lovingly maintained by the Garden Club of Irvington. The Rose Garden boasts vintage specimens such as the Apothecary's Rose, and award-winning bush and climbing varieties arranged in concentric circles around an ornamental gazebo.
Rose Day will feature live music from the Phillipsburg Ensemble, the Scarborough Singers and the Hudson Harp Consort and Friends. Refreshments will be served. The event is free and will be held rain or shine.
