Milton Hill House
Milton Hill House postcard

The Milton Hill House, an impressive 19th century Greek Revival mansion situated on a knoll overlooking the Neponset River, was originally the residence of Hezvibah and Nancy Miller. In 1846 the Millers transferred the property to their niece Annette, who briefly conducted it as Miss Miller's Female Academy. Following her death the property was inherited by the Whitney family who operated it as the Milton Hill House, a private hotel and boardinghouse which accommodated up to 35 guests who wanted 'the advantages of a country home easily accessible to the city.' When the mansion was demolished in 1960, an apartment complex, also known as the Milton Hill House, was built on the property.
