Miller's House

Dublin Core

Title

Miller's House

Description

The Miller's House is an excellent example of what was known as a Patch House. With the influx of miners as more shafts were opened, housing needed to be quickly provided. Patch Houses received their names due to the fact that they were quickly thrown up on patches of land. More boarding houses than homes, they were provided to the men by the owners of the mining companies.
