Miller–Pence Farm is a historic home and farm located near Greenville, Monroe County, West Virginia. The main farmhouse was built in 1828, with five modifications through 1910. It began as a two-story Federal style brick home on a coursed rubble foundation. A two-story addition dated to the 1880s, with a cut stone foundation, has board-and-batten siding, evoking the Carpenter Gothic architectural style. Also on the property are a former slave school (c. 1870), second school (c. 1870), three barns (c. 1880-1920), tractor shed (c. 1920), equipment shed (c. 1930), corn crib and ruins of Miller's Frontier House (c. 1770), spring box (c. 1778), original road cut (c. 1800), and the Miller-Halstead Cemetery (c. 1775).[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.[1]
