In 1870 the old wooden mill was replaced with a stone factory building (known as the Lorillard Snuff Mill), which presently serves as a restaurant in the nearby New York Botanical Garden in Bronx Park. In 1888-89 the City of New York acquired land for Bronx Park. The former Lorillard mansion became part of the New York Botanical Garden, and the elegant building served as a police station and later an art and science museum until it burned down in the 1920s.
