October 2017

The Lexington County Museum is a true educational epicenter for our community’s history. Each year, the facility sees visitors, not only from our own backyard, but from across the country and around the world.

The museum offers a variety of programs throughout the year, including the popular Haunted History Halloween Program, and their newest success, the “Murders and Mysteries” Walking Tour of Downtown Lexington.

This year’s Haunted History Halloween Program will take place October 26-27, 2017, with tours at 7pm, 8pm, and 9pm, located at the Lexington County Museum Complex (231 Fox Street). This family-friendly event explores the local superstitions in the 18th and 19th centuries, while teaching participants about the Town of Lexington during the antebellum period. Admission is $6 for non-member adults/$3 for non-member children and reservations are encouraged.

Additionally, the Lexington County Museum has worked hard to engage our adult community, thus creating the new “Murders and Mysteries” Walking Tour of Downtown Lexington. The latest tour will take place on Saturday, October 28, 2017 at 8pm, starting on the 100 block of East Main St. Attendees will learn about some of the spookier aspects of Lexington’s history, focused on murders and mysteries that occurred in downtown Lexington in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Because of the mature subject matter, we ask that attendees be 18yr+ or have parental permission to attend. The event is FREE to the public.
