Ask Lonna Miller how she came to own Buckner Events Plaza at McClellan, and she’ll say it was a miracle.
“We were about to leave on a vacation. I was throwing newspapers away, and I happened to see a foreclosure notice for this place,” said Miller, who had always had a soft spot for the building’s historic Spanish Colonial Revival architecture. “I thought, ‘No way.’”
