Inscription.  Miller’s Barn, owned by Chris Miller, was the first school in Ocean View, now known as Albany. Located near here, the barn was also the site of the town’s first civic meetings. Mr. Miller, one of three school trustees and the town’s first Marshall, refurbished his barn by adding windows and a floor so it could be used as a school, as well as a general meeting place and a dancehall.
