More about this marker. The property is also known as the Geibel Residence.
Regarding L&N Bed and Breakfast. From the National Register of Historic Places registration form:
The name Geibel Residence was derived from the first owner Fred P. Geibel who owned the property from 1892 until 1919. The current name, L&N Bed & Breakfast, comes from the current owners who live next door and operate this bed & breakfast. L&N refers to the historic Louisville and Nashville Railroad that not only traveled next to the building on the north side, paralleling Fourth Street, but owned the building between 1942 and 1946 and used it for housing their employees while a new railroad bridge was being constructed. During their occupancy, the door knobs were replaced with ones that have the L&N insignia embossed on them. These door knobs remain intact today.
