  • (West Virginia Collection within the Carol M. Highsmith Archive, Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division)

A two-story, five-bay antebellum brick house with plain stone sills and lintels, the Miller House is a typically vernacular version of the Greek Revival style. The double row of sawtooth brick that forms the cornice is characteristic of the region. A later one-story porch with Italianate trim covers the central three bays.
