Beginning early 1890’s, residences in various Victorian styles were built by the prominent citizens on West Union Street. West Union Street became Burke County’s preeminent showcase of residential architecture. The Miller-Beyer House was constructed in ca 1895. This one-and-one-half story frame house is an excellent example of the Queen Ann style with heaped roof and gabled dormers. For a long period of time, the house was unoccupied and deteriorated. Because of substantial damage the house became an endangered property. Mr. and Mrs. Beyer purchased the property and decided to rehabilitate the house in accordance with State Historic Preservation Standards.

    • Preservation of Miller-Beyer House
    • Past is not the property of historians –
      it is a public possession.
      It belongs to anyone who is aware of it, and it grows by being shared. It sustains the whole society, which always needs
      the identity that only
      the past can give.
      Dr. Walter Havighurst

    • EPILOGUE
      Preservation engages the past in a conversation with the present over mutual concern for the future.
      William J. Murtagh
    • Most environmentally sustainable building is the one that’s already built.
      There are many reasons why preservation is critical for maintaining the spirit of our community and the protection of our environment.
    • Thanks to Mary and Dick Beyer for preserving a part of Morganton’s history.
      Thanks to Historic Burke Foundation for actively promoting preservation
      of our historical heritage.
