The house was built by Benjamin Church, a pioneer carpenter and master builder. It is an excellent example of temple type Greek Revival architecture, popular in New York state at the time Mr. Church moved to Wisconsin. The name Kilbourntown comes from the pioneer community in which it was located west of the Milwaukee River. In 1938 the house was moved to Estabrook Park and restored.
