 A vernacular “Downing Cottage,” this Gothic Revival dwelling was built c.[[1860]] for the son of [[Joseph C. Jenkins]], part owner of the [[Boone County Distilling Company]]. ​ Local tradition maintains that the house was sited so the son could be observed by the father, but not heard. ​ In [[1880]] Jenkins sold the house to George R. Berkshire, whose family retained ownership until the 1950s. A vernacular “Downing Cottage,” this Gothic Revival dwelling was built c.[[1860]] for the son of [[Joseph C.
