Regarding Kimberly Crest. Kimberly Crest, constructed in 1897, is an excellent example of Chateauesque architecture. Near the residence is a Chareauesque-style carriage house. Terraced Italian gardens designed in 1908 stretch almost a thousand yards from the entrance of the residence down to the entrance of the grounds.
