More About This House

The stone building was originally built by Joseph Kimble in 1857. The master bedroom was added later (exact date unknown). Joseph Kimble was first son of Samuel Kimble Sr. one of the original pioneers to settle in Manhattan. Joseph Kimble was also the elder brother of Samuel Kimble Jr. (or Judge Kimble) who built the Kimble Castle in Manhattan, KS. This stone house was originally a farmhouse surrounded by hundreds of cherry trees and apple trees. We renovated the house from inside-out and updated every nook and corner. This house is not currently under the National Historic Registry. However it is prequalified to be listed in their registry.

Recent Improvements

All three baths and the Kitchen were completely renovated. The carpets were all removed and the original wood floors were rejuvenated to their original glory. A new stamped concrete path was paid to connect the front and backside of the house. New concrete porch was laid near the drive way. The surroundings were cleared and the landscape was updated to fit the style of the house. New roof was laid. Bat and Radon mitigations were performed. The crawl space under the house was cleaned and fixed appropriately. Its nearly 160 years old house with 2017 technology and upgrades.
