Miller Banks House

The Miller Banks House was built in 1912 by Levi Prater for the Miller family.

It is a monumental, Neo-classical structure with a four column, two story ionic portico stretching over a full one story porch. It was sold to Rafe Banks in the 1920s and his decedents own the house today. The home has a large central hall access, elevator, and dramatic double staircase. A 1970s survey of the property notes that a barn was converted in to a one story dwelling on the northeast corner of the property that is no longer present.
