Physical Description

Constructed of logs and later weatherboarded, this house has been added to at different times until little of the original structure remains, except some old doors. The front door has the six-panel, two-cross door, set in a more modern side lights and transom frame, with a stoop to the street. Two large outside chimneys remain, but most of the house has been remodeled.

Historical Significance

This home is said to have been built by the pioneer Millers, probably the founders of Woodstock. Abraham Miller may be identified with confidence as a member of Clark's little army of 1778-9, in the conquest of the northwest. Abraham Miller is listed in the roll of Capt. Joseph Bowman's Company, dated Feb. 25, 1778, discharged Aug. 1778, having 1200 miles to go home.
