Must See Bluegrass Historic Places
The Bluegrass region was the first part of Kentucky to be settled. Early on Lexington functioned as the gateway to the western frontier and soon developed into a mecca for economic, intellectual, and political activity. As a result Lexington gained the reputation of being the "Athens of the West.” The historic buildings and homes that remain today have stories to tell about the influential and fascinating people who not only helped build the city, but our nation as well.
