As a country estate, Lyndhurst was successively sold with its contents and was almost continually occupied from 1842, when its first owners took possession of the newly-built home, until 1961. As a result, the house maintains the preponderance of furnishings from the three main families who owned it over the past 175 years; the Pauldings, the Merritts, and the Goulds. The changes in the furnishings at Lyndhurst over time are extremely well documented.
