Historic Hinkle House To Become Home To Farm Workers

KSCB News - December 22, 2013 8:45 pm

A historic but rundown home built by one of Dodge City’s earliest sheriffs is getting new life as residence, this time for low-income farm workers.

A Hutchinson-based group called Interfaith Housing Services has renovated the home built in 1880 by George Hinkle. He defeated Bat Masterson to become the city’s third sheriff.

Interfaith Housing Services provides education, housing and financial support to low-income farm workers. It also has a reclamation program that acquires, fixes and sells abandoned houses to such workers.

Dodge City owns the Hinkle house, but Interfaith Housing worked with the city and volunteers to rebuild it. It’s a historical property and cannot be sold, meaning the new residents who will soon move in won’t have to buy it.
