In October 2015 the City of Pikeville and the Pikeville City Commission began a community based volunteer project to rehabilitate the 1874 York House and preserve the history of the Dils/York family and their influence in Eastern Kentucky during the late 1800’s. The Dils/York House sits on Main Street in the Historic District of downtown and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The house has deep historical roots to the famous Hatfield McCoy Feud and was owned by attorney James York who married Colonel John Dils daughter and then became the attorney that represented both families during the feud. History tells us that discussions to end the feud were held by James York and Randal McCoy in the front parlor of the York House.
