Margaret (Class) Miller’s
impressive home, remodeled in 1892, was definitely good advertising for V
Miller Lumber, his retail lumber yard & contracting business. Miller
established the firm when he moved to Kirksville in 1880; he retired and
sold it to his son-in-law, Clarence J Baxter, in 1908. Dee
Riley bought the house in 1928 and remodeled it again to accommodate his
residence and the Dee Riley Funeral Home.
