Lynnewood hall was built between 1897 to 1900, and has 110 rooms and has one of the most important gilded age private art collections. The building is T shaped, and has 55 bedrooms, a ballroom big enough for 1,000 people, swimming pool, wine cellars, farm, carpentry and electrical power plant. Someone describing the mansion said "Dripping with silk, velvet, and gilded moldings, the rooms furnished with chairs from Louis XV's palace, Persian rugs, and Chinese pottery, the halls crammed with art by Raphael, Rembrandt, El Greco, Van Dyck, Donatello." The owner, Widener died at Lynnewood, when he was 80 in 1915. though he died after his son and grandson who both died on the titanic in 1912. Since Wiedener died to 1940, the Lynnewood was open to the public for them to see the art. In 1940, Joseph Wiedener donated over 2,000 pieces of the art to a museum. After 1940 the grounds were used for guard dog training. Though Lynnewood is vacant, it is owned now by the Korean Church of New York. They have tried to do things with the property, but there are zoning issues.
The building is not accessible, it has guard dogs, and large gates and fences, as seen in the video.
