Mills Mansion

The Hudson Valley has numerous historic locations that offer guests the chance to walk the grounds, but the one place most of us love going to is located on the grounds of the Staatsburgh State Historic Site. Mills Mansion located at 75 Mills Mansion Drive, Staatsburg was built in 1832 and expanded in the 1890s to become one of the Hudson Valley's most beautiful estates. The 25 room greek style mansion is an example of the wealth some families had during the American Renaissance. It was once home to Ogden Mills and his wife Ruth Livingston and is now a New York State Historic Site and is an elegant example of the beautiful homes built by America’s financial and industrial leaders during the Gilded Age according to their website. The mansion is also the home of "music in the park", a weekly summer concert series.

Staatsburg Once Had the Letter H in the Spelling

Fun facts that most of us had no idea about is what we love about a town that becomes the Wolf "hometown of the week"! Susan texted us that the town Staatsburgh was named after combing the names of two people that owned the land patent way back when. Dr. Samuel Staats and Dirck Vanderburgh's names were combined to come up with "Staatsburgh". The "H" was dropped om 1890 according to Wikipedia.
