Linden Hall

Linden Hall was purchased and restored to its original grandeur by the United Steel Workers of America in 1976.

The mansion, dedicated on Christmas Day, 1913, was built for Sarah Cochran, widow of coke and coal pioneer Philip Cochran, at a cost of two million dollars. (Two million dollars in 1913 was some real money!)

An Aeolian pipe organ, one of only three in the world, can be heard throughout the mansion via pipes on the first and third floors.

With 8,720 sq. feet on each of its four floors, the mansion contains 35 rooms, 27 fireplaces, 13 baths, and a finished basement. Other features include Tiffany windows, an indoor bowling alley and walk-in clothes dryer.

Take a guided tour of this turn-of-the-century home featuring rooms profuse with baroque woodcarving, marble, crystal, and gold leaf; an oval dining room with its light fixtures of sterling with wedgewood inserts; elaborate Victorian furnishings, oriental carpeting, original paintings, and signed Tiffany windows. National Historic Register.

The Linden Hall Mansion was featured recently on the A&E Cable network's "AMERICA's CASTLES" program.

A golf course surrounds the grounds of the mansion. Dinner theater is offered in the summer. The Yough River Trail adjoins the the magnificent grounds.
