The Lexington History Museum is housed in the old Fayette County Courthouse in Cheapside Park. Built in 1898, the building is now home to numerous permanent and rotating exhibits about the history of Lexington, beginning in 1775, when the town was settled and named after the Revolutionary War battles of Lexington and Concord. Many exhibits are free and the museum is open regular hours Friday through Monday, so it’s the perfect place to stop by after having weekend brunch at one of the many downtown eateries.

Located within an 8-minute walk from Transylvania campus.
