Support the Dining Room Restoration

Because of you, the highly anticipated Dining Room restoration begins!

As you can see in the photographs below, 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 means that work has begun on replacing the disintegrating draperies and that we can go out to bid on painting the most notable eyesore in the Mansion – the peeling Dining Room ceiling. The Friends would not have been able to start restoring this favorite room without your support. Thank you!

BUT WE’VE ONLY JUST BEGUN! This year, the Friends of Mills Mansion 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 Mansion that will 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.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.
