Mills Mansion Donation

Over time, exposure to the sun has damaged its faux marble walls, gilded ceilings, and especially the silk draperies. The Friends are working with the State to return it to its full glory.

Your generosity allowed work to begin on replacing the disintegrating draperies. We have recently awarded the bid to paint the flat sections of the ceiling, the most notable eyesore in the Mansion. The Friends would not have been able to start restoring this favorite room without your support. Thank you!

This year, the Friends of Mills at Staatsburgh will focus on raising funds needed to complete the specialized repair of the Dining Room’s gilding and faux marble and the shoring up of the windows that protect the Mansion from the elements.

To continue this work, we need your help. Your gifts have a significant impact on our success; the more funds we raise, the more of an impact we can all have.

Please consider a tax-deductible donation to the Friends of Mills at Staatsburgh to help preserve this Hudson Valley treasure. In doing so, you help ensure this beautiful landmark continues as the heart of our community and a cultural resource for generations to come.

Many employers will support the generosity of its employees through a matching gift program. If your company does so, please submit your donation.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.

“Strong financial support of these historic homes is very important. They’ve become more in vogue now because of Downton Abbey but I think also people are finally understanding that these sites are a lot of fun to come to.”
