Miller - Kelso Residence
Miller - Kelso Residence.
Joshua Miller and his brother-in-law Jack Kelso came with their families to New Salem. On November 17, 1832, Miller purchased two lots from John Camron for $25, and lived here with his wife Nancy and their children, Caleb and Levicy. His home was headquarters for Baptist preachers who came to the neighborhood. The open area was usually used for eating or as a sitting area. Kelso was a hunter, fisherman and "jack of all trade".
