Mills Estates is a beautifully developed neighborhood in Burlingame that was once part of the sprawling 1,500 acre Mills estate. The estate was a fixture in the area from the 1860s to after WWII. Its towering, 42-room mansion stood until 1954, when it was destroyed by a fire within about 2 hrs. The legacy of the Mills Family is lengthy and accomplished, but the legacy of Mills Estates becomes the focus after that time. Developers, eager to begin providing homes for post-war families, bought up large sections of the estate. One of these sections was procured and became the Mills Estates Burlingame Neighborhood. Most homes and enclaves were built out in the 1960s, making Mills Estates one of the most modern areas of town. Some homes were built since then like opulent estate homes found near Mills Canyon Park.
