Island Living


Twice in 1977 I visited Roswell Miller on his “Migdale Estate” in Millbrook, New York.  Roswell was previously married to philanthropist Andrew Carnegie’s daughter, Margaret, and Migdale, from what I was told is a 1,000 acre miniaturization of her 75,000 acre estate in Scotland.

Driving up to the main house is like approaching a small castle, with  a foyer approximately 40 feet tall!  After passing through a series of rooms we eventually found Roswell in his wheelchair in what I suppose would be the living room, but which for most of us would comprise an area the size of a entire house!  All around the room and lining other rooms as well are lighted cases holding various collections: silver, crystal, minerals.  I remember being overwhelmed by the beauty of it all and the sheer amount of items!  It was like going to a small but well-stocked private museum!
