In 1900 a Connecticut Corporation called the Buhl-Kimberly Corporation, was formed by Frank Buhl of Sharron, Penn., and Peter L. Kimberly, of Chicago, Ill. Neither man ever lived in Idaho, but visited the tracts they invested 1 million dollars in many times. Mr. Kimberly was in Twin Falls in 1905 just before the lots were sold, but illness forced him to return to his home where he died.
