DESCRIPTIONThe foundation is made of black lava rock. It had four bedrooms. It had one clothes closet.
HISTORYThis home was built in 1912. William Marshall did the brick work. The Ashbys moved into one of the four bedrooms while the others were being completed. They did not have indoor water. Mr. Miller borrowed $500.00 to build and nearly worried himself to death until it was paid off. It was the only house in the east except for Moroni McArthur.
Years later, Albert E. Miller built the cupboards and an ice box. They eventually put in a sink and built a cabinet.
