Miller. The house which is now called "The Cedars" was originally the home of Mittie Clark Miller who is credited with the authorship of eighty novels. Most of these were written in this house between 1881 and 1930 and earned her great wealth under the name of Mrs. Alex McVeigh Miller.In 1939 it became the home of Mrs. Ruth Bryan Owen Rhode, the daughter of William Jennings Bryan. This talented woman was widely known and greatly respected as a writer, lecturer, university teacher, Congresswoman and diplomat. Mrs. Andrew McThenia, whose home this was for about thirty years beginning in 1945, gave time and energy to a well planned landscaping project, which involved the growing and useof hundreds of English boxwoods throughout the almost 16 acres. "The Cedars" had its beginning in 1881 when Alexander McVeigh Miller brought his wife, Mittie Point Miller, to his home in Alderson. His father, V.G. Miller, gave him ten acres of his holdings on the edge of North Alderson in Greenbrier County. The Cedars was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978." (Mr. Roy E. Buckland)
