Main Street, Lexington

Lexington is a great town to visit. It’s easy to walk around the historic side streets, exploring the architecture and history of a place that dates to the late 1700s. The town itself was incorporated in 1806 and named for Lexington, Massachusetts. It’s close to Athens but with fewer than 300 people still has the feel of a traditional small town. Here’s another view of Main Street’ historic commercial row, taken from the courthouse lawn.

    The man who purchased the bank converted second and third floors to lofts. The lower level can be liveable but he prefers a business. Some people are doing great things in this small town. Check out Ogethorpe Fresh. Some issues for the mid shopes but I’ll let that go. Small towns have issues agreeing on things that could benefit all.
