More About This House

The Kimbrough- Hehr House situated on 80+ acres known as the Broadwell community. The home is situated on the old Lexington to Covington Road, which linked the Bluegrass to northern Ky. and Cincinnati across the Ohio River. This farm came from a large land grant issued to Samuel McMillian, one of the first settlers in the county, by Governor Patrick Henry of Virginia. This was sixteen years before KY. became a state and seventeen before the creation of Harrison Co. Broadwell was once a thriving community until the completion of the railroad.
The home is two story brick Greek Revival structure built in 1840 on a fieldstone foundation. The dwelling is composed of two separate buildings connected by an open passageway . The main building is two story originally one deep room,and containing six rooms and a rear veranda. The smaller structure which originally served as a kitchen with servant quarters upstairs, is a two story building one deep room.
As originally constructed, the home was one deep room with a central hallway.The first floor rooms contain original mantels,simple and unadorned,reflecting the Greek Revival period of the house also with poplar flooring and 10 ft. ceilings.
In 1890 several additions were made to the main house. Two rooms and a two story veranda were added to the front of the house. It is believed that Henry Kinney, a landscaped architect who purchased after World War II reversed the main entrance.
The one story brick slave quarters is located 50ft.of the main house. It contains one large room with brick end chimneys. This has been altered by the previous owner for a studio . A small bath has been added. The structure is covered by a gabled roof with a modillioned cornice. The home has two brick center lined chimneys one on the northwest end and the other slightly off center. Constructed at the same time as the slave quarters was the brick smokehouse. Several hundred feet in front dwelling and outbuildings is a ca.1820 one story-brick commercial structure which has been weather boarded. The structure is two rooms deep with poplar flooring. The front room has a ceiling flue for a heating stove and the back room has a large fireplace with an ornate Federal mantel. the structure has two chimneys. This structure served as a tavern, blacksmith shop, a post office, and in later years a church. There is also a large barn on the property and a large machinery shed. The property is beautifully landscaped, lots of mature trees. The home is located 15 minutes to Georgetown and 1 hr. to Cincinnati. Agent to accompany.
