Irwin Miller House and Gardens Posted April 15, 2011 by Daniel Ostroff

The historic Irwin Miller Home and Gardens in Columbus, Indiana, is one of the most important modernist homes in the country.

Industrialist J. Irwin Miller and his wife Xenia Simons Miller commissioned The Irwin Miller Home and Garden in 1953. It was designed by Finish born architect Eero Saarinen, interior designer Alexander Girard, and landscape designer Daniel Urban Kiley. The home will open to the public on May 10, 2011, under the care of The Indianapolis Museum of Art, which has preserved the home since 2009, after the Millers donated it with their passing.
