It’s National Bourbon Heritage Month–celebrating America’s only native spirit. So what better time to launch the newest book from the My Old Kentucky Road Trip team?

Cameron and I were born and raised in Lexington and while we personally consider ourselves experts on the town, that is probably not in the least bit true. So this weekend we’re going to explore some of the more historical points of our home town. We won’t hit every spot, but we’re hoping to traipse around the old neighborhoods of downtown and discover where some of the earliest Lexington settlers called home. Until then, here are a few cool facts about Lexington to satisfy your growing appetite for our road trip recaps: • Lexington was founded in June 1775 in what was then Virginia, 17 years before Kentucky became a state in 1792. • The first American performance of a Beethoven symphony was in Lexington in 1817. • The brass plate embedded in the sidewalk at the …
