Oliver Miller Homestead, site of the James Miller House, is a public museum that commemorates pioneer settlers of Western Pennsylvania. It is located in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania's South Park 10 miles (16 km) south of downtown Pittsburgh near Bethel Park, Pennsylvania.
The house was built on the site of the Oliver Miller Homestead, which was first settled in 1772. In 1794, the first gunshots of the Whiskey Rebellion were fired on the property. In 1830, the original log house was replaced with a large stone section, making it the "Stone Manse" house as it stands today. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975, and is a stop on the American Whiskey Trail.
