Inscription. This park was once the summer home of "the cattle king" Henry Miller. Mr. Miller was the dominant partner in the firm Miller & Lux. The large foundation on your left was Mrs. Miller's home, and the other two foundations were a dining hall and possibly their son's house. Arriving in America as a penniless immigrant, Henry Miller died on October 14, 1916, owning over 1,000,000 acres of land and 1,000,000 head of cattle.
