Local History Index
Selective finding aid to Lexington newspaper articles about significant people, places and events from 1787-2007.
The selective citations included in the Lexington Public Library’s Local History index appeared in various Lexington newspapers beginning with the Kentucky Gazette in 1787 through the Lexington Herald-Leader of December 31, 2007. The nucleus of the database index is a card file in the Kentucky Room developed by staff over a number of years. Not all newspapers for all years are indexed. We are currently involved in an effort to selectively index back issues of the Lexington Leader, thus new citations frequently appear.
