Marker Text In 1881 Dr. P.M. Kuykendall (b. 1855) bought this land which once belonged to Joseph Naler. This Victorian residence with Queen Anne style detailing and fish scale shingling was built in 1900 using plans ordered from a St. Louis architect. A prominent physician, Dr. Kuykendall helped found Moody Masonic Lodge and served on the Jefferson Academy Board. He and his wife Ella Naylor (McLeod) and their four children occupied this home.
