INSPIRATION GUIDE

Pick up a complimentary Historic
Walking Tour Map at the Lexington
Visitor Center at 106 E. Washington

Street for locations and summaries for
46 historic stops downtown. While there,
ask for a walking tour map of Stonewall
Jackson Memorial Cemetery.
That clattering sound? The Lexington
Carriage Company leads horse drawn
carriage tours past the Cemetery, Lee
Chapel and Museum, the Lee House,
as well as the newly expanded Stonewall
Jackson House, which features
compelling new research into the lives of
the six enslaved people who were part of
the Jackson household.
Despite (or maybe because?) its deep
historical roots, a new vibrancy has
sprung up downtown in the last decade or
so with more innovative shops opening all
the time. Lexington boasts an unusually
robust art scene for a small town. Earth,
Fire & Spirit Pottery is a chic showroom
of locally made pottery (check out the
pieces featuring Game of Thronesinspired dragons), hand crafted furniture,
paintings and gifts. A few doors down
is Artists in Cahoots, a cooperative of
creatives who produce paintings, iron
works, sculpture, printmaking, silver and

RETIRE Here

A BEAUTIFUL NATURAL SETTING featuring four distinct seasons, access to
quality health care, a relaxed pace of life combined with a rich college town
culture have all made Lexington a popular place to retire (plenty of retirees
are W&L and VMI alums who felt pulled back to the area). It's not uncommon
for those retiring here to buy a "farmette," a small farm property, and try their
hand at chicken raising, gardening or cheese making. Others opt for a citystyle condo downtown or a home in the historic residential district. Kendal,
Lexington's premiere retirement community, is a popular option in high
demand. Regardless of the path, plenty of like-minded folks live in Lexington.
