History of Miller
Miller is named for Dr. Dennis Miller, who practiced medicine in Murphy from 1891 to 1933. After graduating from the Plano Institute in 1885, Miller taught at the County Line School and continued to teach intermittently during his medical school years to support himself. Miller Elementary opened for the 1995-96 school term.
