This month’s An Evening With Your History presentation is titled “Lexington Before it Went Dry” and will be presented by local historian and author, William Ambrose.
Before the 18th Amendment and Prohibition, Fayette County was a leading Bourbon producer and the area’s breweries thrived. With the stroke of a pen, it all went away. To be sure, after Repeal, pieces of Lexington’s alcohol production came back, but it was never the same again. Relive those days when Lexington was the “Bourbon Capitol of the World”!
