Miller House Museum

The Miller House Museum is an 1825 brick townhouse located in downtown Hagerstown, Maryland. Serving as the headquarters of the Washington County Historical Society since 1966, the Miller House is home to the kinship Family Heritage Research Center, the Miller House Museum, and the Museum Gardens.

The Miller House Museum combines historic furnishings with local history to tell the story of the three families who lived in the house from 1825 - 1966 and the story of Hagerstown and Washington County as seen through their eyes. Collection highlights include Civil War artifacts and other military artifacts dating from the French and Indian War to the Second World War, local Shenandoah pottery, locally made tall case clocks and furniture, and antique dolls and toys.

The Miller House Gardens were the first reproduction Federal-period gardens in the state of Maryland. The walled gardens create a sense of tranquility in the middle of the bustling downtown, with authentic historical plantings and tables, chairs, and benches for eating lunch, a snack, or simply enjoying the surroundings. During the summer months, the gardens are home to plenty of family friendly crafts, games, and musical events. Be sure to check out the events calendar for upcoming workshops and other events.
