Welcome to the Frankel-Nichols Home located at 1918 South Main in Hopkinsville’s Historic

District. This Colonial Revival home was built around 1915, and at completion was billed by the

local newspaper as “modern in every respect.”

This big and beautiful home retains the elegance and quality of the original construction.

Originally built by Malcolm Frankel – one of the first millionaires in Hopkinsville - Mr. Frankel

had the home built for his new bride before leaving for the First World War

This four-plus bedroom two bath home is original and intact. The current owners have lovingly

and carefully restored the home, yet not destroyed the original details. Key elements include a

two-turn paneled staircase, 10-foot ceilings, deep crown moldings with gorgeous dentil detail,

original pocket doors, a working elevator, original beveled imported mirrors, dramatic fireplace

mantels and overmantels, butler’s pantry, original mosaic tile, large formal dining room, custom

ceiling-to-floor draperies, cedar-lined closets in the master suite, and so much more…

The third floor has been finished into a large bonus room, and the home has a dry

basement/cellar that has a modern sump system. A beautiful sunroom overlooks

the brick-fenced courtyard to the rear, and an electronic side gate provides access to the garage

and courtyard areas. The detached garage includes storage area above.

The exterior of the home has been recently painted, as has the entire interior, including all oil-

based paint on the original trim.

This home was recently featured in the 2022 “Homes for the Holidays – Tour of Historic South

Main” and had fourteen Christmas trees at that time.


This is one of the most intact historic homes ever offered in this area.

There is no way to conceptualize this home without seeing it.
