The building at 720 Poyntz Ave. was originally constructed in 1912 by one of Manhattan's founding families, the Kimble family.

Katie's Way underwent a complete interior remodel in order to upgrade and update the building for a more modern and functional use. The stone was removed and installed carefully in order to create an exact replica of the exterior and the original wood floor was restored. The house's original trim and doors were salvaged, restored and reused in the renovation.
The building space of the current Katie's Way location has had multiple functions throughout its history. After its original use as a home to the Kimble family, the building has been used as a law office, health service center, and chapel. Prior to the Katie's Way renovation in 2013, it operated as a funeral home. Unique to other historic properties of downtown Manhattan, the Main House is accompanied by two outbuildings, a stable and a barn, that have also been restored and repurposed.
