The Lewis Miller Cottage was the home of Lewis Miller, leader of the Chautauqua movement. It is one building included in the larger Chautauqua Institution Historic District, also a National Historic Landmark.

It was named a National Historic Landmark in 1965.,[2][4]

The coordinates in the map on the right are an improvement over what they were, but they are still incorrect (I haven't figured out how to change them yet). This structure is on the southwest side of Whitfield Ave. at the corner of Vincent Ave., a bit to the south of the intersection of Whitfield Ave. and Miller Park Ave.
