Marker Text Samuel Lynn and Marjorie Williams Miller were early McAllen leaders. Sam had interests in a nursery, banking and real estate, and was co-owner of the Hidalgo International Bridge. In 1930, he donated 109 acres of land to establish the municipal airport, which later became McAllen Miller International Airport. Marjorie was a civic leader active in the Order of the Eastern Star. The Miller home, inspired by a trip to England, was built in 1937. Robert Vogler designed the English Tudor Revival house based on Marjorie's plans. The work of local artisans is evident in the Austin Cordova stonework, half-timbered gables and gumwood detailing inside and out. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 2002
