In 1962, the house was sold to the
Congregation of Notre Dame, an order of teaching nuns, who established
there the headquarters of the congregation in the United States, as
well as a home for retired members of the order.
From about 1968 to 1972, the congregation
operated a Catholic prep school for girls on the site, but lack of
enrollments forced its closing. In 1999, the Landmark Academy acquired
the school building and, now renamed Ridgefield Academy,
operates a private grade school there.
Members of the Lynch family -- as well as
people who worked for them during much of the 20th Century -- still
live in Ridgefield.
