The Ogden Mills Residence
Ogden Mills residence designed by Richard Morris Hunt between 1885-1887 at 5th Avenue and East 69th Street in New York City. Mills was a financier, philanthropist, and son of Darius Ogden Mills. He was married to Ruth T. Livingston and the two were the parents of Ogden L. Mills of Woodbury, Gladys Mills Phipps of 'Spring Hill' in Old Westbury and Beatrice Mills Forbes. The house was demolished in the late 1930s and replaced with an apartment building. Click HERE for more on the Mills estate at Staatsburgh, remodeled by McKim, Mead & White c. 1895.
