Lexington city hall, 1978

Posted on October 19, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

The Lexington city hall building on what was then called Walnut Street at Barr Street, Sept. 28, 1978. Today, Walnut is North Martin Luther King Boulevard. Originally a neo-classical building, it went through expansion and renovation in the 1960s. City government offices were there for more than 50 years until moving to the Lafayette Hotel building in 1984. The Lexington government is currently looking for a new city hall.
