Named for pioneer landowner Lemuel Kimbro, this community was settled in the late 1870s by Swedish, Danish, and German immigrants. Most of the residents were cotton farmers, and at its height the community boasted homes, farms, the Swedish Evangelical Free Church of Kimbro, a school, a cotton gin, and two general stores. The school closed in 1947 when the nearby Manda consolidated school district was formed, and the church building was moved to Elgin in 1954. Many of Kimbro's early settlers are buried here; some of their descendants still reside in the area.
