A Servant’s Life

August 7 @ 10:00 am - September 29 @ 4:00 pm

Get your hands dirty in a brand new exhibit at the Miller House Museum! In “A Servant’s Life,” household artifacts, photographs, and more plunge visitors into the life of a servant at the Miller House. From the earliest days of Washington County, domestic help was widely used, which included European indentured servants, slaves, and paid African American and Caucasian individuals. Follow the daily routine of a 19th century servant as you move throughout the museum in this multi-story, interactive exhibit. Learn more about the lives and stories of Miller House staff, as well as those who served in other households throughout local history, with a tour of this new exhibit.

Highlights of the exhibition include an original 1805 copy of a servant’s manual and authentic clothing worn by 19th century kitchen staff.

Experience the life of a domestic servant and learn more about their trials and tribulations at “A Servant’s Life,” which will run from Saturday, August 4th to Saturday, September 29th.
