Eustis Estate

W.E.C. Eustis – Amateur Photographer

W.E.C. Eustis, the original owner of the Eustis Estate, was an amateur photographer and documented life around the estate and in Milton. Many of the photographs feature his family, especially his children at play. But he also captured the work of the estate and farm, as well as scenes from the community. Sometime after the original construction of the house, a dark room was added to a storage area of the basement. He could develop prints from his glass plate negatives right in his own home.

In the gallery below you can see some of W.E.C.’s photographs, most from the mid-1890s.
