THE MILLER-PIEHL BUILDING

THE MILLER-PIEHL BUILDINGThe Miller-Piehl Building

One of the most historic and well-preserved business buildings in the city is the former office of the Miller-Piehl Company. It dates back to 1893-94. For most of the 20th century the company provided building materials, coal and various services and resources for area residents. Over the years the elements have taken their toll on the brick building and it is in need of repair.

For many years the building served as the community museum. When the new museum was opened in 2012 the Miller-Piehl Building was converted to a 1930s era general store, serving as the agricultural component of the museum. Fortunately, thanks to our generous donors, a sustainability fund was established and the total cost of $35,000.00 for restoration will be financed through the historical society budget without any tax dollars involved.
