George M. Miller Houseby The Historic Tampa/Hillsborough County Preservation Board

The George M. Miller House, constructed in 1914 as the residence for the President of Ruskin College, is listed in the National Register of Historic Places for its social/humanitarian and architectural significance. Miller served as the president of the small agriculturally-oriented cooperative college until his death in 1918. With many of the students engaged in the war effort the school was forced to close and all of its buildings save the Miller House burned in 1919. The house in an impressive, well-preserved example of the bungalow style and appears to be the work of the same hand that designed and/or built the L. L. Dickman House.
