A Tribute and Memorial to David F. Ogilvy

“David, because of his unique position, could have sold our beloved town out a billion times over. I remember him touring prospective buyers through historic homes such as ours and trying to get them to think creatively, explaining how they could meld old with new.

The same with listings. And with land. Always how to preserve – how to keep character and familiar streetscapes. He was like the self appointed “Protector of Greenwich.” Years ago he attempted to win tax abatements for those who would agree not to subdivide their land, but it did not pass. David was a gentle man of integrity, guided by a strong moral compass and his deep love of this town.”  — Elise Hillman Green, co-founder, Historic Properties of Greenwich.

David Ogilvy (1942–2020) was the former President and owner of David Ogilvy & Associates, a leading force in Greenwich real estate for over 40 years. An enthusiast for Greenwich’s history and quality of life, he sponsored for many years the Historical Society’s annual Antiquarius Holiday House tours and its Greenwich Landmarks programs to document and plaque significant historic structures in Greenwich. He led the joint initiative with the Historical Society, Land Trust and Sandra Hillman to create a land easement and preservation restriction in 2003 for Stoneybrooke, the first local historic property located outside of an historic district to be permanently protected in Greenwich.

He was a cherished friend and member of the Greenwich Historical Society’s Advisory Council since 2007 and contributed to our “Reimagine the Campus” capital campaign in 2017. He served faithfully as a trustee of the Greenwich Land Trust for ten years beginning in 1998 and as its president from 2002-2003, greatly admired for leading the charge for the “100 Days to Save Treetops” fundraiser. David made significant contributions toward the preservation of Fisher Field in 1999 and the Mueller Preserve in 2012.

He was the first person to receive the Audubon’s Lifetime Conservation Award and was also honored with the Boys and Girls Club National Medallion award and as Rotary Club Citizen of the Year in 2010. Greenwich will forever be grateful for his leadership, enthusiasm and vision that enabled the preservation of so many historic places and open land in Greenwich.
