Baxter and Helen Miller House

3312 Devon Road, ca. 1959, Contributing Building

One-story, shallow side-gabled, brick Modern dwelling has U-plan that forms front courtyard hidden behind an Asian-inspired brick wall topped with decorative wood elements; vertical wood siding over brick skirting at the exterior walls that form three sides of the courtyard; the flat roof’s deep eaves shelter awning-style windows; prominent projecting attached two-bay garage faces the street. City records put the construction date of this house at 1960, but the city directories show that a house at 3314 was under construction in 1958. That address does not subsequently reappear, but the 1963 city directory shows Baxter and Helen Miller at 3312. This is the only available parcel between 3310 and 3318. The Millers, who had been part owners of Miller-Bishop, a downtown clothing store, appear to be retired by this date.
