Miller's of Claflin: A Cool and Colorful Past


For more than 115 years, Millers of Claflin has been the one of the primary businesses in

the small town of Claflin, Kansas. Founded in 1903, the original store carried a lot more than just furniture. Buggies, hardware, implements, and even windmills are just a few items that packed this popular store.


As Kansas started developing and growing, as did Miller’s. In the early 1990's, Miller's

added 5 showrooms to their main store, which was originally built in 1915, and a

showroom to the west for bedding and bedroom furniture and an additional warehouse.

Miller's is the largest furniture showroom in central Kansas, exceeding 100,000 square feet and Is one of the most spectacular things for anyone to lay eyes on. Even though we can tell the story, there is simply nothing like laying eyes on the showrooms that are spread out all over the town of 700. The downtown itself may be only a couple of blocks long but that does not change how incredible it is. Buildings that serve as showcase rooms or warehouses have façades that appear to be historic buildings, such as a meat market, hotel, feed store, saloon, bank, and even a theater.


This expansive furniture store is also on the 8 Wonders of Kansas as well. Not only are

they the largest furniture store in central Kansas, they are the largest family-owned home

furnishings store in all of Kansas. With customers from Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Colorado, it is easy to see how everyone knows where Claflin, Kansas is.


No matter where you call home in this great country, if you ever find yourself in the

Sunflower State, a trip to Miller’s Furniture is an absolute must. Sure, they are the best in their business but beyond that, the experience at Miller’s is more than just experiencing a furniture store.
