Built in 1841 by Henry Longsdorf, great-grandfather of Enola Miller, this iconic mountain stone house still graces the hill at the juncture of SR 11-15, Valley Road and First Street in present-day Summerdale. In 1887, when Wesley Miller sold two parcels of the family farm to the Northern Central Railroad for a flag station near the house, he was offered the chance to name the station. Miller chose "Enola," honoring his four-year-old daughter and forever linking Enola Miller to the history of the villages of East Pennsboro. Almost 180 years after being built, the living legacy the Enola Miller House represents to EP Township and County residents is acknowledged by its addition to the Cumberland County Historical Society's Register of Historic Places.

Join the festivities on Sun., June 23, 2019, as a commemorative plaque is unveiled at the Enola Miller House, located on the corner of  First Street and Valley Road, just off SR 11-15.

This event will be held rain or shine; bring your folding chairs or picnic blankets to spread on the lawn.
