Lord’s Castle in the village of Piermont in Rockland County was built in 1892 by McKim Mead & White, and it does not skimp on the impressiveness. Ten bedrooms, 15,000 square feet of living space, 18 acres of land within striking distance of the Hudson River, elevators, lots of grand fireplaces, an additional cottage and a barn, and that’s just scratching the surface. Wondering who put the “Lord” in Lord’s Castle? Eleazar Lord, first president of the Erie Railroad. Dude was so rich and powerful, he went and hired the biggest architectural firm in the country to build him his own castle of which to be the king, and now it could be yours for only $5.5 million.
