Picture of property 720 Poyntz Ave
Manhattan (Riley County)
Listed in National Register Oct 2, 2015

Architect: Undetermined
Category: single dwelling
Thematic Nomination: Late 19th Century and Early 20th Century Residential Resources in Manhattan, KS

The nominated property was home to Barney Kimble and his wife, Mary Ann, from 1912 until Barney's death in 1920. It is a two-story limestone, Queen Anne (Free Classic)-style house with Colonial Revival influences. The form and layout also relate to the American Foursquare with a large hipped roof over the core of the house and smaller intersecting gables on all four sides. The nomination includes the main house and two limestone outbuildings (a stable and a barn), a grouping rarely found within the Manhattan city limits, particularly in an area that has seen growth and change throughout the 20th century. The Kimble House is nominated as part of the Late 19th Century & Early 20th Century Residential Resources of Manhattan multiple property nomination for its local significance in the area of architecture as a vernacular interpretation of the later Queen Anne Free Classic style.
