Historical Background - The house’s original occupant, Dr. J. K. Miller moved to Greeley in 1895 and served throughout the city in many capacities. Dr. Miller was a member of the first staff of the Greeley hospital, and reportedly performed the first operation there. He served as city physician for three years, and was a member of the school board for six years. Dr. Miller served 22 years as vice-president for Colorado of the American Sunday School Union. He also served as a member of the Social Science circle for 37 years. City directories place Dr. Miller’s residence at 1022 11th Street in 1898 and at 1411 9th Avenue in 1901. An 1898 article states that “Dr. Miller is contemplating the erection of a residence on Ninth avenue, south.” The Millers lived in the residence through 1930.
