Lexington has evolved into a quiet, dignified, and elegant old town. Its lack of growth has allowed it to remain relatively true to its 18th and 19th century origins. The Lexington Historic District, which encompasses most of the town, has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1977. Many people visit the historic courthouse or the library just west of town to search the extensive collection of records available. Several unique antique/art/gift/shops are clustered around the Courthouse Square, including a coffee haus/beer and wine bar and a bakery/cafe. Not to be missed is the Goodness Grows Nursery, Perennial Garden, and Gift Shop located on Highway 77 North off of Highway 78. Historic Walking Tour brochures are available at local shops.
