17. Miller House, 1906

Miller House - 2-story later example of Queen Anne style house
Built by W.E. Miller, this home is a late example of the Queen Anne style. Note the porte cochere on the north side of the house. In 1909, Mrs. Sarah Beckwith, a widow and philanthropist, purchased the home. Her late husband, Capt. Warren Beckwith, was one of the founders of the Western Wheeled Scraper Company. The upstairs bedrooms still retain the original call buttons for the servants.
