Lexington Points of Interest

Did you know the first millionaire West of the Alleghenies settled right here in Lexington?

This is the house built in 1814 by John Wesley Hunt, the first millionaire west of the Alleghenies. The house features the Alexander T. Hunt Civil War Museum

The Mary Todd-Lincoln House is also right here in good ol' Lexington.

This house was completed in 1806 and occupied by the Todd family from 1932 to 1849. Mary brought her family to visit her childhood home in 1847. Her husband, Abraham, (you remember him right?)
spent hours in her father's extensive library, where he met the remarkable Henry Clay.

Memorial Day is coming this Monday... just a few days away! In honor of Memorial Day, I will be selling my dresses at a discount. Be watching to see what I will be doing to remember those who fought for our country to honor our country. I will have a special sale! Small businesses made this country great. Come support a small and independently woman owned business that defies CHAIN RETAIL STORES!
