Gribbin’s Gallery, 1986

Posted on March 2, 2016 | in Uncategorized | by
Eugene Gribbin, a former drummer and composer, donated this 21/2-story brick house at 429 North Broadway to local government in 1986. He died at age 94 in 1990. The city got a Renaissance Eclectic building, a showplace when built in the 1870s. Gribbin was to receive maintenance and lifetime occupancy of his combined residence-antiques shop-framing business. In 1995 the city sold the house to lawyer Harriet L. Allen, former Fayette Circuit Judge Charles Tackett and their associates for an office. The building is now the office for  Wilkes & McHugh, P.A.
