The Miner family.

Richmond Hill officials honored the Miner family on Friday, April 1, 2022 by putting a historical marker at the intersection at highways 17 and 144, also known locally by longtime residents as  "The Crossroads."

Richmond Hill Mayor Russ Carpenter called  it more than just an intersection, " because, on all 4 corners, for decades, this location has served as a place to do business, meet someone, eat, have a truck-pull, shoot a gun and win a turkey, stage a rodeo, house our local justice of the peace, and even hold church services," he said. "These four corners have seen a lot, and the Crossroads has become an integral part of the fabric of our community. The owners or operators, and some would say circus ringmasters, was our own Miner family.  You notice I said 'our.'  That’s because this old guard family, perhaps more than any, is ingrained into Richmond Hill."
