The history of Lexington Kentucky is an interesting one. Lexington was founded in June 1775 in Virginia, seventeen years before Kentucky became a state. Daniel Boone was one of the first white men to explore the area and helped establish Kentucky's first forts. William McConnell, a leader of a group of frontiersmen, stopped at a campsite at what is now known as McConnell Springs, on the middle fork of Elkhorn Creek. Lexington was actually named after Lexington Massachusetts because the group was so inspired by the colonists' victory in the battle of Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775. A blockhouse was built, cabins and houses soon followed.
The town of Lexington was established on May 6, 1782, by an act of the Virginia General Assembly. By 1820, Kentucky was one of the largest and wealthiest towns west of the Allegheny Mountains, and was named the "Athens of the West" because of its culture and rich lifestyle. John Wesley Hunt, an entrepreneur, became the first millionaire west of the Alleghenies
Abraham Lincoln was born in Kentucky, spent time in Lexington, and his wife, Mary Todd Lincoln was born and raised in Lexington. In addition, Confederate President Jefferson Davis was also born in Kentucky (less than one year and 100 miles apart from Lincoln), and attended Transylvania University in 1823 and 1824.
