The fine old brick mansion at 135 West Washington Street in Hagerstown is the headquarters of the Washington County Historical Society. Research indicates that the main structure of the house was built for William Price, a prominent young attorney, who acquired the property in 1823. The mansion is a typical town house of the late Federal period. In the entrance hall is the original hanging stairway rising in a graceful curve to the third floor. There are several bedrooms with furnishings from the 1850s through the 1870s. Exhibits include papers and historic items from the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Civil War and the C&O Canal. A wonderful clock collection may also be found within the walls of Miller House showcasing clocks large and small from local clockmakers of yesteryear. Simms Jamieson Historical and Genealogical Library is open year round in lower level of the Miller House from Tues-Sat 9am - 4pm.
