The Robert Miller House is one of the few structures in Lawrence that survived Quantrill’s Raid in 1863. The Miller’s were abolitionists who moved to Kansas prior to the Civil War and offered their home as a stop for run-away slaves on the Underground Railroad. The current property owner and retired University of Kansas professor, Dennis Dailey, shared the story of the Miller home and why he thought the raiders may have spared the home.
