HYDE PARK, N.Y. — New York state parks officials are unveiling a $2 million project at one of the Hudson Valley's great estates from the Gilded Age.

The Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation and parks supporters gathered June 5 at the Staatsburgh State Historic Site in Dutchess County to discuss the project that restored the portico on the east side of the Mills Mansion.

Ogden Mills and his wife, Ruth Livingston Mills, built their mansion in the mid-1890s atop a grassy hill overlooking the Hudson River and the Catskill Mountains in the town of Hyde Park. The family donated the mansion and estate to New York state in 1938.

State parks officials will talk about upcoming history tours and events being held at Staatsburgh through the coming weekend, June 14-15.
