    It was actually in use until 2006 🙂 my late grandfather, Gene Smith, served as sheriff in the 1970’s and 80’s, and my uncle is the current sheriff. I love Lexington, and am so glad to see the revitalization taking place.

    Is the old jail open for tours? Could you please send me the information? Address, hours open, etc.
