|Pottery Firing Kiln
On land originally owned by Abraham Miller through a U.S. Land Patent homestead -- 9-1-1891.
Abraham Miller is believed to have jointly used this kiln with Robert Solomon Ham -- possibly from the
late 1880's to mid 1890's; and perhaps intermittently up to 1912 when Robert Solomon Ham died.
Abraham Miller is believed to have continued to operate this kiln until his death in 1928. The Miller family
eventually moved the pottery business west to Alabama Highway 5, several miles north of Heiberger. This
kiln is located just North of Mt. Olive Baptist Church on the west side of County Road 51.
