General James Miller has left his mark on the region, leaving his name on landmarks such as the General Miller Highway and Miller State Park. Now, a select few residents will have the opportunity to see the house he and his family lived in for more than 100 years, as part of a benefit for a local disability advocate group.

On Friday, ABLE NH will host a benefit dinner at the General Miller House in Temple, owned by ABLE president Lisa Beaudoin. 

The house was originally built by Ebeneezer Edwards in the 1770s, and was purchased by James Miller in the 1830s. It remained in the Miller family until the 1950s.

Beaudoin, now the seventh owner of the home, said it has been updated and restored after surviving a devestating fire in 2014, but many of the features are still original, including the five-flue fireplace. 

The dinner will include local venison and grilled steak with beef from Temple Mountain beef with seasonal vegetables and wine pairings, eaten in the General Miller house. The dinner will include a house tour and a history. 

There is a limited seating of 10. Tickets are $50. The price will benefit ABLE NH, specifically helping to fund a film festival featuring people with disabilities planned for October. To reserve a ticket, contact Beaudoin at 878-0459 or email lisa.ablenh@gmail.com.
