Local name Miller House reported in 1903 by T. G. Gerdine, U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The name was previously reported as "Mammoth House" in 1896 by Spurr (1898, pl. 50), U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).  During its heyday (1898-1930) Miller House supported a roadhouse, 4th class post office and general store.  Miller House was the local supply point for the mining camps on Mammoth Creek and its three tributaries, Independence, Mastodon and Miller Creek.  I visited the site in the early 70s and could look in the windows and see wagons, old vehicles, tack, furniture, lamps.  Some of the items can be seen in Central at their museum.  The local rumor was that everything in the area had been mined except where the Miller House buildings were sitting.  But believe that area has since been mined.
