Geocache Description:

You are looking for a regular sized container at Staatsburgh Historic Site. The photographs in the cache are to remain in the cache – do not take.

Not far from Staatsburgh’s south façade was where the Mills family constructed a greenhouse complex. These greenhouses supplied cut flowers for the Millses’ homes in Staatsburgh, Manhattan, and Newport RI.  A special rose house was added to the complex in 1910, as Mrs. Mills was fond of roses.  The complex also included a tree house for raising clipped, potted bay trees and palm trees grown for the Staatsburgh home.  These potted trees were placed in many entertaining areas of the house, such as the library and the dining room.  Today the greenhouses no longer stand, but their foundations can still be seen along the walking path on your way to cache #9, along with the Tree House, the large brick building on your left.
