- In 1850 a small cottage tenement house was built in what was then an almost open field on the site of the present Millbourne House. This cottage was occupied for one summer by John Sellers, 4th, who sought it for the sake of his little children. The grandparents were greatly attracted by its pleasant and airy surroundings, and were eventually led, in 1858, to build the house which became the second Millbourne home (shown in illustration), and is now owned and occupied by John Sellers, 4th, with his family. The planning and building of this house was largely under the direction of Mrs. Sellers, the mother of the present occupant. She greatly enjoys the self-imposed task, in which she had the able assistance of John M. Gries, a young and promising architect, who gave his life for his country in the War of the Rebellion.
