Fayette County Buildings & Architecture

Fayette County's buildings contain a great deal of history about the region and its inhabitants. 

The Old Kentucky Architecture book contains images, details, and some architectural layouts from all around Kentucky, but the Lexington properties include Llangollen (the Dr. John C. Lewis House), the Benjamin Gratz House, Rose Hill, Hopemont, Eothan, Ashland, Mansfield, Helm Place, Carrick House at Whitehall, Morrison College at Transylvania University, the tomb of Gideon Shryock's father Matthew at the Old Episcopal Burying Grounds, Ingleside (listed here as Ingelside), Loudoun House, Botherum, Walnut Hill Church, and the Sexton's Cottage at the Old Episcopal Burying Grounds. 

The Illustrated Lexington does have a variety of images, but included are some exterior and interior photographs of downtown Lexington businesses and houses.
