Darius Ogden Mills purchased land in the 1860s to build a country estate. The estate became known as "Millbrae", derived from "Mills" and the Scottish word for rolling hills "Brae". A more than decade long desire to keep the Mills' estate for residential use spurred residents to incorporate as the city of Millbrae in 1948.
