Kimbell House

The former home of Isham Kimbell, who was the only member of his family to survive the Kimbell-James Massacre, near Fort Sinquefield during the Creek Indian war in 1813.

Kimbell was elected Sheriff of Clarke County and in 1833 was elected Clerk of Circuit Court and served several terms. He was a successful merchant until his death in 1881.

This home was built by Isham Kimbell in 1848 on Lower Commerce Street. It was given to the City by the Woodson family and moved to its current site in 1977.

The home has been beautifully restored and offers spacious parlor, serving and/or dining rooms with rich, wood floors, high ceilings, separate kitchen prep area, large covered porches and a lush courtyard.
