"An Historic City-Preserved in Time" Lexington by BruceDunning

Lexington Travel Guide: 10 reviews and 33 photos

A little bit of history

This town was intended to stay as it looked since the mid 1800's. They have done a good job of doing so. The homes are mostly under historic preservation guidelines. There are many small shops run by entrepreneurs having unique items to purchase. Staying in some of the B&B places is a trip that you would remember

Reverance in town

This old church is elegant in and out. It is a nice place to find yourself.

The river flows

This is an example of what the Missouri river can do when it rains upstream. It floods, and a lot. In recent years this was a problem in 1993, 1995, 1996-7. Lately, rain is less and the climate change makes a difference. The river is low most of the time now. Lexington is isolated at times to get across the river, and some roads close to the river edge closed for quite some time until water recedes.
