Home to two prestigious educational institutions, Lexington was founded in 1778. Higher education and tourism make the wheels in the town's economy turn. The town boasts a long list of historical sites; some are located in the red-brick buildings along the small main street, while others accentuate the natural landscape. The parks and forests that surround the town offer visitors a taste of the idyllic southern countryside that so inspired Thomas Jefferson.
