Mills' estate grew to span from Skyline Boulevard to the Bayshore Highway and Millbrae Avenue to Trousdale Drive. Children swam in the three lakes on the estate and sold acacias to visitors before the Mills family began to sell the land for development. Transportation has to a great extent shaped Millbrae's growth. From the turn of the century, the "interurban" streetcar traveled through Millbrae, linking the city with San Francisco and San Mateo.
