This home is named for Allen Miller, a contemporary and
neighbor of Abraham Lincoln. Mr. Miller was a wealthy
local dealer in leather, stoves and tin. Miller, his
wife and three children lived in the home from 1855 to
1864. It is believed the home was built around 1850.
The simple but comfortable wood framed house was typical
for a successful Springfield businessman of that era.
This home is now a part of the Lincoln Home National
