Gragg-Owen-Miller House, 1910, Brunswick

Thanks to Ginger Miller for identifying this wonderful Colonial Revival, which has been in her family for six generations. She writes: My grandparents (Gragg) purchased the house, my parents (Owen) had it next and now we (Miller) have the house. Mr. McKinnon who built the McKinnon House across the street built this house for his daughter. Our property was a part of the land grant for Glynn Academy. We have the abstract on the property dating back to 1835. She also notes that it has a brick basement, a real rarity in sea-level Brunswick.

    Excited to see our home pictured! The 1910 house has a brick basement, which is not often found in Brunswick. Six generations of our family have called this house home!

    • Ginger, I’ll update this immediately! Thanks for sharing the date. Is it known as the Miller House?

      • Ginger Miller

        Not really. My grandparents (Gragg) purchased the house, my parents (Owen) had it next and then we(Miller) have had the house. Mr. McKinnon who built the McKinnon House across the street built this house for his daughter. Our property was a part of the land grant for Glynn Academy. We have the abstract on the property dating back to 1835. Records on the property before that were destroyed in a courthouse fire.
        Love seeing your work!

      • Okay. Thank you so much, Ginger! I’ll title it the Gragg-Owen-Miller House, if that’s okay.

    One other thing. We added the cottage addition in 2011 for my dad to move in with us. The cottage has 900 square feet of living space that opens directly into the main house.

    I spent a lot of time in this lovely home during my high school days as Carolyn Gragg was one of my best friends. I always thought of her Dad as Mayor Gragg because he was mayor of Brunswick at one time. And I remember Ginger also as she was a neighbor of my parents in the South End.
