Sundays are generally a great day to get out and take a walk around Lexington. Today is no exception as the Bluegrass Trust for Historic Preservation sponsors a “Sunday Stroll” with 8 open historic sites. Put on your walking shoes and head to Gratz Park where the stroll will begin. Refreshments and a music ensemble are to be found at the Bodley-Bullock House at 200 Market St. Just across Gratz Park, the Hunt Morgan House will be open as well.
The Sunday Stroll is a free way to get out and see important historic sites in Lexington. While the Lexington History Museum is always free, we will be giving a 10% Discount in the Court Square Trader Museum store during the event. Visitors must mention the Sunday Stroll to receive the discount.
The evening culminates at Christ Church Cathedral for an organ concert and Evensong beginning at 4:30. The Lexington History Museum will be open until its normal time of 4 p.m. so be sure to check it out!
