1. Miller-Davidson House Marker
Inscription. Built in 1858 in the Greek Revival style popular at the time, the house is built of locally quarried limestone with mortar lime coming from the lime kilns. The Miller-Davidson House, original to the site, is special in many ways beginning with the unusual arched foundation. In 1935 it was selected by the Federal Government’s Historic American Building Survey. And in 1973 the National Register of Historic Places listed this beautiful early American farm home among those t be preserved for future generations. The house has not been restored to its original state but is presented as a house improved as lifestyles improved. It now houses an eclectic decorative arts collection.
