About the Friends

The Friends of Mills Mansion (FOMM) are dedicated to preserving the Staatsburgh Historic Site, one of the finest surviving monuments of the Gilded Age in the United States through a public-private partnership with the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation.

Founded in 1988, The Friends of Mills Mansion support the preservation and improvement of the mansion and its grounds. Among our many contributions are sponsoring educational programs, securing funds for preservation and interpretation, supporting the research library, producing educational materials, and sponsoring curatorial surveys and reports.

The Friends of Mills Mansion are committed not only to preserving this extraordinary landmark but to ensuring its relevance for generations to come.
