This unusual house likely originated as a central hallway design with the protruding “wings” being later additions.

Colonel Edward Payson Miller House, Circa 1845, Walthourville

I identified this as the Miller House, using a photograph in Virginia Fraser Evans’s Liberty County: A Pictorial History. Colonel Miller was a Confederate veteran associated with the Liberty Independent Troop and one of the most prominent members of the community, serving as a leader in the Walthourville Presbyterian Church. It is also known as the Miller-Dryden House.

Thomas H. McMillan House, 1888, Savannah

Now known as the McMillan Inn, this imposing Italianate Victorian was originally the home of Thomas Hasley McMillan (11 March 1854-21 September 1941), one of late-19th-century Savannah’s most successful businessmen. He came to Savannah from Fayetteville, North Carolina, in 1878, to open a branch of his McMillan Copper Works. The most successful supplier of turpentine stills in the South, they once had plants in Fayetteville, Jacksonville, Pensacola,  and Savannah. Mr. McMillan also served as chairman of the Savannah Park & Tree Commission.

Some sources note that it was originally home to the “McMillan Brothers” and was designed as a duplex. I’ve been unable to track down information about the brother but will update when I learn more.
