The Kentucky Room

I was really surprised in your article about the library (“The Lexington Central Public Library is a home,” April 2013) that nowhere did it mention the existence of the Kentucky Room. Now, I know that was not the focus of your article, but given the fact that I am very interested in the history of Lexington, and probably know as much in that area as most, I was looking for that part.

The Kentucky Room has maps of Lexington which have helped me in my treasure hunting activities here since 1999 when I moved here with my family (since divorced). It also has books, reference materials, etc., for those who are interested.

Quite a few people don’t know of its existence–what a shame. The real Lexington is buried there, why don’t you check it our?

By the way, I just got a copy of your paper from my daughter: I score it 8 out of 10.
