Kimbell served as a sheriff of Clarke County and later Circuit Court clerk. He was also a successful merchant. This home was built circa 1848 on Commerce Street. It was donated to the city by the Woodson family and moved to its present site in 1977.
This house is located on Mayton Drive across from the elementary school in Jackson, AL (GPS coordinates 31.529617, -87.893710).
