In 1933 Clark Miller had a choice. Stay in Clarkston and work for his father, Ben Miller, at a Ford dealership he owned located on Main Street in the downtown area, or move north to a farm in Brandon Township.
"Ben did not think there was any money to be made in the car business," said Clark Cook, grandson of Clark Miller. "He could have been a car dealer, but selling corn for $2.35 per bushel that's the reason he came up north to Brandon Township from Clarkston."
Over the years Miller added on to the 100-acre farm located at 2950 Seymour Lake Road, which included milk cows. He purchased his first tractor in 1941.
