Evergreen Estates (Miller-Marshall House)

-A A +A
Miller-Marshall House
1790s. PA 286 at Tunnelton Rd., 0.4 miles south of Clarksburg

The Evergreen Estates house, overlooking Blacklegs Creek, was built by Christian Miller, and is reputed to be the oldest house in the county. The five-bay stone house has a four-over-four plan, central stair hall, two interior end chimneys, and a c. 1900 frame unheated summerhouse that is now attached at the southwest corner. The house has randomly laid stonework and rudimentary quoins. Originally, the main entrance faced the creek to the north, but in 1984, the area enclosed by the ell of the house was paved, effectively moving the main entrance to the southern elevation. The barn and several outbuildings remain north of the house.
