Our History

Samuel Miller's Legacy

Miller Home was founded in 1875 by a local businessman, Samuel Miller, who donated land and an endowment fund for the care and support of young women in the community.

Miller Home has cared for more than 1000 girls since opening its doors in 1875. When first established, the Miller Home was known as the Lynchburg Female Orphan Asylum. At that time the home could care for approximately 100 girls at a time and it was located in a four story building on a working farm.

Today, Miller Home is still located in Lynchburg, and continues Samuel Miller's intention of providing care and support for young women in the community.
