Horace McMillan House (1885)

This is a private home, so please pull off the road in front of the house. Use your blinkers.

Jonathon McMillan and his twin brother David of York County Pennsylvania acquired land from the Horatio Gates grant, and brought their families to what is now Chester Township, Clinton County, about 1805. They traveled by wagon to Pittsburgh and to Cincinnati by flatboat. As other family members joined them, and the family grew, they built seven brick homes in the neighborhood. The ruins of two of them are still visible on Wall Road. This frame house was built in 1885 on the site of a former brick house.

Horace McMillan was a grandson of settler David McMillan. The McMillans were one of the founding families of Chester Meeting.
