Walking tour of the railroad in Lexington — HLF board member Byron Faidley will guide a walking tour of the railroad in Lexington, starting at the old train station, now ODK headquarters, at 224 McLaughlin Street. Wear walking shoes!

Historic Lexington Foundation decorated a beautiful Christmas tree in 2022 and 2023 for Natural Bridge State Park’s Festival of Trees, replete with past president Beverly Tucker’s hand-painted ornaments. Board members Susan Minor and Margaret Samdahl assisted in decorating the tree.

In September, Historic Lexington Foundation said "Thank you!" to our major donors at a reception in the Sigma Nu national headquarters in Lexington. The event also celebrated the life and generosity of the late Margaret Cole Davis, a steadfast HLF supporter and donor who died in 2020 at the age of 99.

A bequest from Ms. Davis enabled HLF to restore the roof and steeple as well as upgrade systems at the Gospel Way Church of God in Christ on Henry Street , which 150 years ago had been the town's first Roman Catholic church building. The Gospel Way church runs an important food bank, which is why the HLF-sponsored electrical upgrade was essential.
