Be a Part of History
Born in 1884 in a mountain stone farmhouse, Enola Francis Miller’s first name was chosen by her father, Civil War veteran Wesley Miller, when he was given the naming rights for a flag station of the Northern Central Railroad. It later became the name of what was once the largest rail freight classification yard in the world and the whole town. Constructed nearly two centuries ago at the corner of Valley Road and First Streets in Summerdale, the house where Enola was born -- the Enola Miller House -- was moved this Spring to its new home up the street at First and Miller Streets.
Efforts are now underway to raise the funds that are needed to restore, preserve and convert the Enola Miller House into a local museum highlighting the historical significance of the house, the town of Enola, and the greater East Pennsboro Township community. A great way to contribute is with the purchase of an engraved brick or paver. The bricks and pavers will be utilized for walks and pathways on the grounds of the house and the new HSEP office.
A GoFundMe page has also been set up for online donations which can be accessed at gofundme.com/enola-miller-house. No donation is too small. All donations are deeply appreciated!
