Land Title Company of Alabama was incorporated in March of 1951 by William F. Miller and John S. Thornton. At the time, Land Title Company was the third title company to come into the market for this area. Mr. Miller followed his father's footsteps into the title business. He spent many years working for another title company in town before leaving to start Land Title Company with Mr. Thornton.

With an office on bottom floor of the then Empire Hotel, the work began. The office has held several locations in downtown Birmingham. In 1987, Land Title Company moved to its current location on 6th Avenue North and 20th Street.

In 1960, Mr. Thornton suffered a massive heart attack. At this time, Mr. Miller bought Mr. Thornton's share of the company to become the sole shareholder.

In October of 1963, Mr. Miller died suddenly. His two sons inherited the company. William F. Miller, junior (Bill) was on active duty at Fort Jackson, while John C. Miller (Jack) was still in college. Both Bill and Jack spent many years in high school and college working for their dad and were prepared for the task. Bill left his duties in Fort Jackson and in turn became President of Land Title. Once Jack finished college, he returned to the company and became the Executive Vice President. Recently, Bill's son William F. Miller, III (Tripp) became a fourth generation Miller to be in the title insurance business. As his father and uncle, Tripp, too, spent many summers working here. He began full time upon graduation from college.
