Circa 1901Tommy Miller had this house built on the foundation of an earlier home that had served for a time as a parsonage for the Methodist church. Possible traces of an Underground Railroad hiding place from that earlier era are still evident in the basement. In a shed located across the street behind 510 South Main, Miller invented and was issued patents for an oilcan and a wagon jack for horse drawn wagons. He also designed the machinery to produce these items, which were manufactured in Springboro and sold through-out the midwestern United States.
