As president of Miller & Vidor Lumber Co., one of the largest in the state, Miller was responsible for the growth of the timber industry in much of southeast Texas and for the development of area rail lines. This Victorian cottage, where Miller and his wife resided until 1912, features decorative sawn brackets, stained glass, and bay windows.
