The Joslyns ofMoreThe Joslyns of Lynhurst is an authoritative account of the lives of George and Sarah Joslyn and the construction of their estate. The result of a two-year research project to solve several mysteries about the couple and their castle. The Joslyns of Lynhurst finally answers the question of who designed the grounds of the estate and identifies the craftsmen who created the magnificent interiors and art-glass windows that grace the couples thirty-four room mansion. Author Daniel Kiper dispels many of the scurrilous myths about them -- such as their involvement in the drug trade and their purportedly eccentric behavior -- and instead portrays them as the important cultural and civic leaders that they truly were. Kiper also takes a fascinating look at why Sarah Joslyn spent the majority of her fortune contsructing the Joslyn Memorial Art Museum in memory of her beloved husband.
