Miller Park Site of Swap Meets

Miller Mausoleum and Park, just north of Holden on Highway 131, held its first swap meet of the summer on Sunday, June 28.

Owner of Miller Park, Carl Cranfill, says the event was a great success.

According to Cranfill, the swap meets will be held every Sunday, starting at 10 a.m. and running until late afternoon.

Western Commissioner for Johnson County, Charlie Kavanaugh, came out to support the event.

He brought his lemonade stand to provide much-needed refreshments for visitors.

Farmer’s Market vendors are also invited to come out to Miller Park.

They will be separated from the swap meet vendors by an area adjacent to the gravel parking lot.

The park grounds are also available for the public to use for picnics and nature walks by the lake. Fresh-water faucets, as well as some electrical outlets, are available for public use.

Cranfill is the great-grandson of the mausoleum builder, Joseph Miller, and will conduct historical tours upon request.

The old Holden landmark was built about 100 years ago and was placed on the National Register of Historical Places two years ago.
