Benjamin Miller House

This modest frame dwelling was constructed by Benjamin Miller, master carpenter of the Potomac Aqueduct.

One of the city's few small Greek Revival houses, the Benjamin Miller home is a distinguished example of antebellum architecture. Built in the mid 1840s, the frame home is free-standing with 3 bays, a low gable roof, end chimneys, and a pedimented Greek Revival portico with Doric columns.

Originally from New York, Benjamin Miller came to Washington to oversee the construction of a wooden superstructure to complete the Potomac Aqueduct. 

It is probable that he designed and oversaw construction of his own home.
