Frederic and Augustus Eustis
Fred and Gus Eustis were the twin sons of Edith and W.E.C. Eustis. Born in November 1877, they were two years old when the young family moved into their Milton home. The twins were very active in their youth. Their father enjoyed capturing images of them playing tennis, bicycling, riding horses, and participating in other activities on the estate. Both boys followed in their father’s footsteps and attended Harvard University, graduating in 1901, and then joined the family mining business. In the years that followed, Fred married and built a house next door for his growing family. Gus married several years later and continued living in his parents’ home, taking over the estate after his father’s death in 1932.
