26. Staatsburgh

Statsburgh Hudson Valley Estate

Staatsburgh is one of New York’s most impressive mansions. The house was constructed in the 1890s by McKim, Mead, and White for Ogden Mills and his wife Ruth Livingston Mills. Completed within a year, the house contains 65 rooms, 23 fireplaces, and an incredible 14 bathrooms. The mansion was one of five homes owned by the Mills. The family mainly sojourned at Staatsburgh in the fall when they would entertain as many as eighty guests at a time.

In 1938, the mansion and 192 acres were donated to the state of New York. The mansion is now open for tours and special events throughout the year. You can check out what’s coming up here.
