Historic Miller Barn Restoration with HistoriCorps


September 8 through October 4, 2019, HistoriCorps, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to engaging volunteers in the rehabilitation of historic structures on publicly accessible lands, in partnership with the National Elk Refuge, is working to restore the 121 year old Historic Miller Barn.

The Historic Miller Barn on the National Elk Refuge, represents a range of historic events significant to the development of the National Elk Refuge and Jackson, WY. The 30-by-40 foot barn was built in 1898 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The barn is part of the Historic Miller Ranch on the National Elk Refuge. The site referred to as the Historic Miller Ranch includes the original log home or Miller House, the Miller Barn, and a one-room log building that was once used as the original office for what later became Teton National Forest, known currently as Bridger-Teton National Forest.

HistoriCorps is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that provides volunteers of all skill levels with a hands-on experience preserving historic structures on public lands across America. Volunteers work with HistoriCorps field staff to learn preservation skills and put those skills to work saving historic places that have fallen into disrepair. HistoriCorps works to ensure America’s cultural and historical resources exist for generations to come.
