Built in 1847 in Greek Revival style, the westernmost section of 11-13 West 10th Street was erected for Richard H. Winslow, a Wall Street financier, renowned for his role as the originator of the railroad bond system. The eastern half of the property remained vacant until 1888, when noted architect Ernest Flagg added an extension to the property. This portion of the home reached completion in 1919 when it was raised to align with the western segment, and joined with a single cornice.
From 1919 to 1994, 11-13 West 10th Street was home to the Ladies Christian Union, and operated as a residence hall for young businesswomen. The property became known as the "Milbank House," in recognition of Jeremiah Milbank, an investment banker, manufacturer and railroad investor, who significantly enlarged the home and donated it to the Ladies Christian Union in memory of his mother and wife, both of whom had served as presidents of the charity.
The New York University Law School purchased 11-13 West 10th Street from the Ladies Christian Union in 1994. It was used to house the Global Law School Program, which functioned as a base for visiting professors to lecture on campus. The home was later purchased by private owners, who created the magnificent single-family residence present today.
