Kendrick's Kitchen Renovation

Lucinda's Rock House is the iconic farmhouse at the center of the Hambidge Center, serving as our residents' communal gathering and dining area. Built in 1920, this historic structure has been well maintained over the years (with lots of help from Lucinda Bunnen), but now it’s time for a major overhaul, including kitchen and bathroom renovations, new paint and screens, new plumbing, and more!

In the words of Virginia Wolf, “One cannot think well, love well, or sleep well, if one has not dined well.”     

In that spirit, we are beginning the renovation with the kitchen, and we are proud to name it for Belinda and Ken Reusch’s son (& Lucinda's grandson). Kendrick left us almost 3 years ago at the age of 28. He had a big heart, he loved life and he always offering a helping hand. We are proud to honor him knowing Kendrick’s Kitchen will be feeding the minds, bodies and souls of our brightest talents that inspire us all to love life more.

With a growing interest in serving chefs in residence and plans to launch a farm-to-table dinner series, we hope to build Kendrick’s Kitchen fit to serve our resident Kings & Queens. Designer Jackie Naylor is working with us to re-imagine a bright, efficient and fully functioning kitchen that is historically appropriate.

We would be honored to have your support with this project. If you would like to support a particular element of the renovation, please mention it in the Dedication field. All donations are tax-deductible.
