Historically recognized both locally and Nationally. Become part of the detailed history alongside Abraham Lincoln who stayed here once upon a time. The underground railroad stopped here, marked by the now 200 year old towering Oak tree. The false wall and space in the basement still exists exactly as it did when built in 1843.Original details include 12′ ceilings, massive pocket doors, plaster mouldings and original wood floors. The floor plan allows for large scale entertaining and separates public from private spaces. Currently used as a private residence, it once was Lexington’s first Bed & Breakfast with 6 suites and owner’s apartment. Use could be returned to a BNB, mutli-family, short term rental or a myriad of commercial uses. The apartment with separate entrance is ideal for college students, in-laws or a rental.Situated on more than a half acre, it’s completely gated, private and offers possibilities for a pool. The 3 bay carriage house serves as a garage and expansive driveway offers plenty of off street parking. Massive stand up attic and basement have potential for even more finished space.
