Eustis Estate

Edith Hemenway Eustis

Edith Hemenway Eustis (1851-1904) was raised in one of the wealthiest families in New England. She gave birth to twin boys in 1877 and a daughter in 1885. Although little is known about Edith Eustis’s personal life, records indicate that she was devoted to her family and had many friends in Boston and surrounding towns. She had three sisters, two of whom died young, and a brother who lived about a mile away from the Eustis Estate. Edith passed away suddenly in 1904 at the age of fifty-three after contracting pneumonia.
