Long Description:
This building was erected in 1914 as the home of Ruskin College's founder, Dr. George McA. Miller. He followed the theories of British Christian Socialist John Ruskin and, with A.P., L.L. and N.E. Dickman, purchased 12,000 acres in 1907-08. He believed in making education available to everyone. This was the third college he founded.
The remainder of the college burned down in 1919. This building became the home of the Ruskin Woman's Club in 1940.
The building designed by Adeline Dickman Miller shows a Swiss Chalet influence with elements of both the Stick and Prairie styles. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on July 23, 1974.
