Eli Miller operated the Green Tree Tavern in Mount Vernon, and later became a well-known merchant.  He is the most likely candidate for building this home sometime n the mid-19th century.  A basic 5-bay design, later alterations to this home include the Greek-Revival portico over the front door supported by delicate columns, and an Italianate bay window.  Both of these alterations were likely added in the early-20th century.  The two-story extension at the rear of the house may be original to its design, or was added soon after the date of original construction as the Miller family needed more living space.
