Jenkins House & Farm at Kirkley Hill
Pendleton Historic Foundations Newest Project
Located at 244 Cherry Street on "Kirkley Hill" in the heart of the Town of Pendleton the historic Jenkins House & Farm at Kirkley Hill was built by Civil War surgeon Dr. William Louis Jenkins in 1837. The house served as Dr. Jenkins family residence and his medical office until 1880. In 1880 Dr. William W. Watkins purchased the home and it served as his family residence and medical office until the 1930. The Hall family of Pendleton owned the House and operated a farm on the property until recently.
The Jenkins House itself is a pure example of Antebellum Architecture and includes the work of enslaved craftsmen. Many of the homes original features are still intact. Much of the finished woodwork and the mantles are attributed to famed craftsman and fine furniture maker William Knauff.
With your help Pendleton Historic Foundation hopes to fulfill our mission and restore The Jenkins House & Farm at Kirkley Hill to be enjoyed by future generations. Plans include Traveling Exhibit Space, Gallery Space for Artist, Medical History Display, Event Space, Creek side Nature Trail, Community Vegetable Garden, Public Gathering Space and more!
