Accommodations


William Miller, proprietor of Rogers & Miller Marbleworks, built our Greek-Revival style home in 1869 on land purchased during the Civil War in 1862. Much of the output of Rogers & Miller Marbleworks can be found in nearby Hollywood Cemetery, resting place of two US Presidents, James Monroe and John Tyler, as well as the only Confederate States President, Jefferson Davis. The inn boasts three marble mantels from William Miller, including the elegant original one in the parlor.

The William Miller House has been totally renovated to maintain the charm of original architectural details: the period window glass, heart pine floors, and those marble mantles, while adding modern necessities such as central air conditioning, updated electrical and plumbing, and wireless internet.

The Inn also features many places to relax: the delightful main floor parlor with fireplace, the garden room with its evening wine service, the porch with its rockers, the stone patio area with its lovely fish pond, and the dining room with its crystal chandelier. Tastefully furnished with both antique and modern pieces in classic styles, the William Miller House is the epitome of hospitality, warmth, and comfort.

The William Miller bed and breakfast has been granted a Green Lodging Certification by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality for their commitment to energy conservation, water conservation, recycling, and other green initiatives.

Other Information


The Historic Fan District
The Historic Fan District is an 85-block Victorian residential neighborhood immediately west of Richmond's downtown commercial area, and is said to be the largest intact Victorian neighborhood in the United States. The Historic Fan District was named to the National register of Historic Places in 1986. The Fan District's development followed the tracks of a late 19th century electric trolley line. It takes its name from its tree-lined avenues and streets that "fan out" from downtown. Best described as architecturally diverse, the over 2,300 classic turn-of-the-century Fan town homes feature bay windows, turrets, high ceilings, parquet oak and pine floors, mahogany woodwork, stained and leaded glass, and varied porch and balcony designs. Most homes are brick or brick and brownstone. However, The William Miller House Bed and Breakfast, one of the earliest homes in the neighborhood, is clapboard.

Much of the unique character of the Fan is derived from the fact that it remains a self-contained community of homes and apartments, restaurants, outdoor cafes, shops, galleries, markets, and service establishments. Fan residents—and visitors, too—have all the necessities of life: food, drink, entertainment, schools, museums, shops of every type and parks within walking distance of their homes.

The Fan District is home to Monument Avenue, considered "one of the most beautiful streets in America," and the only avenue in the United States named a National Historic Landmark. The broad avenue, with a wide central median, is home to statues of the Southern leaders of the Civil War, including J.E.B Stuart, Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis, Stonewall Jackson and Matthew Fontaine Maury. A memorial honoring Arthur Ashe, the tennis great who was born in Richmond, was added to Monument Avenue several years ago.

Life in the district harkens back to an earlier, slower-paced era. Residents stroll and bike along city streets and neighbors know each other. The defining characteristic of the Fan is the spirit of its residents, who are committed to city living and to restoring and preserving their distinctive, historic neighborhood.
