Miller is the baby town of Lyon County, having been founded in 1910. A store was running in 1907 in what now is a cornfield bordering the town on the west. A Miller post office was established in the early days, and moved to its present location in 1886, when the Missouri Pacific railway was built across Northern Lyon County. The town was named for the Millers of the Miller ranch, of which Clyde Miller, of Topeka, is owner. A Rural High School was established in 1919, and a commodious, modern four room building erected. The Methodist Church was built that year. The town is lighted by electricity, its residences and business buildings are well kept, neat lawns and brilliant flowerbeds and substantial cement sidewalks add to the attractiveness of the town.
