• Formal front entry to the house with a central hallway; originally there were 2 rooms on each side of the hallway

  • The original layout is identical to that of George Washington’s boyhood home at Ferry Farm, across the Rappahannock River from Fredericksburg, VA, so perhaps that is why Washington was a frequent guest at The Luke Miller House – it may have conjured fond memories of simpler times from his youth

  • The 2 rooms on the east side of the hallway were combined in the 1920s to form the present living room; the room on the northwest corner was divided to form a second hallway adjoining a walk-in closet, master bathroom, and a water closet; the room on the southwest corner of the house remains the same as it was in the original floor plan

  • The unusual ceiling alcove above the front foyer window was constructed in the 1950s at the direction of former owner, Mrs. Roy H. Kirch, Sr, to accommodate her prized 8+ foot tall grandfather clock
