Renting the Miller House Museum


The Miller House has been the home of the Washington County Historical Society since 1966. For the past 50 years, it has been an essential part of our operations, serving as a permanent home for the offices, library and collections of the historical society, and allowing us more than adequate space to make local history accessible to the public.

One of the hidden treasures at the Miller House is the museum garden. Located at the rear of the building, the garden is not visible from the street, but takes up approximately half of the property’s half acre of land. Because it is enclosed on all sides, it is a private and beautiful location to host parties, summer lectures, and many of the other events we host yearly at the historical society.
