Lexington Things to Do: 8 reviews and 11 photos
The Classic-Revival style structure was built in 1847-49 and is the oldest courthouse west of the Mississippi River that is still in use. That's not its draw though, head to the east column and look up. Yes, that's the original cannonball, embedded and serving as a reminder of the Confederate victory and the damage done to the town during late September, 1861.
Directions: The Lafayette County Courthouse is on Main Street, between 10th and 11th Streets.
