Stephen Miller Steve grew up in Holmes County, Ohio as a typical farm boy. He was born January 15, 1968 in Orrville, Ohio. As a young boy, he had the time and place to trap foxes and to go hunting. He loved reading all about Daniel Boone. He shot his first 10 point buck at the age of 13. One of his childhood hero’s was a ‘hunting uncle’,  Al Miller, also from Holmes County, Ohio. 

Steve developed his artistic talent while going to and completing 8 grades in a small church community school in Holmesville, Ohio. Steve decided to build his own muzzleloader long-rifle instead of buying one. He uses his artistic talent while building muzzleloader long-rifles. Steve has had several long-rifle mentors, of which Allen Martin of Swengel Pa was and still is his most influential mentor. 

Steve and Sarah Miller met in a small community in Stuarts Draft, Va. They were married on September 1, 1990, where they set up housekeeping. They They moved to Mifflinburg, Pennsylvania rural area and lived there for 18 years. 

Steve and Sarah both decided to take a hands-on workshop at the Conner Prairie Living History Museum, in 2008, near Indianapolis, Indiana. Steve enhanced his artistic flare in engravings for his muzzleloader long-rifles from John Schippers . While Sarah learned more about the art of leather possible bag making from Ken Scott.

Over the years Steve and Sarah were invited to do colonial craft demonstrations, and artisans shows starting in 2006.  Rural Heritage Days at the Dale Engle Walker House, and at Fort Freeland Heritage Days at Turbotville, Pa, were some of their first demonstration places. 
Steve and Sarah are currently involved with Dixon’s Gunmakers Fair, Kempton Pa,  Mountain Craft Days at the Somerset Historical  Center, Somerset, Pa. and the CLA Show in Lexington, Ky.

In real life Steve was a ‘concrete cowboy’ for many years.
From the end of June 2019 to March 2020 Steve was in his muzzleloader shop full time. This spring his former boss asked him to come back to trucking for the summer. So Steve is looking forward to his gun shop again in the wintertime.

Sarah was born March 23, 1960 in Hagerstown Md. although she spent most of her growing up years in southern rural Pennsylvania.  Sarah’s parents were both school teachers in private schools. Sarah was encouraged and allowed to try her hand at all sorts of craft and food projects. Sarah grew up on a produce farm where she developed her love for meeting folks at their produce stand. Sarah migrated to Stuarts Draft Va to work in a bakery and later at a greenhouse where Steve and she met after a youth church meeting. 

In the fall of 2011 Steve and Sarah Miller decided to branch out. They found their dream house in Brothers Valley of  Somerset County, Pennsylvania.  With Sarah experience in sales they decided to open a small country store when they moved to Somerset County, Pa in 2012. 

Their house is an early 1800 stage coach stop and tavern which was turned into a country store and later into four apartments.

Steve and Sarah were excited to remodel the building into Steve’s Gun shop and also a Craft and Gift Shop.

As the Millers were remodeling their early 1800 home they discovered a fireplace that was behind a modern bathroom wall. They had a chimney sweep to restore the fireplace, added fire bricks, a hearth, a chimney liner, a chimney cap, and a wood stove. This is now the center of attention and admiration as you walk into Miller’s Olde Roxbury Store,  in Roxbury, Pa,  near Berlin, Pa.

Steve’s new muzzleloader shop has ample elbow room for him to work on his muzzleloader long-rifles.  This had been one of the four kitchens in one of the former apartments.

 Sarah work’s on quite a variety of leather projects such as possible bags, lead ball bags, flint wallets, leather balls, and old fashioned colonial money wallets. Sarah’s leather shop is in the same room as Steve’s muzzleloader long rifle workshop.
