Site of the old Trotter cemetery in the 300 block of Lafayette Ave in November 1953, shortly after the family tomb was leveled and filled in. The brick tomb, built about 1800, was 10 feet deep and contained two 15-by-20 foot rooms. The remains of several bodies had been removed the previous May and reburied in the Millersburg cemetery. Ralph Kendall and Marietta Shannon, both of Lexington, bought the property for a real estate development. Herald-Leader Archive Photo
