You can see the bullet holes in the bricks from the Civil War!
Lexington is a small town on the Missouri River. Historical homes sit on both sides of the main road that lead into the Historic square. You can walk from shop to shop and enjoy the friendly atmosphere of locals.
There are 5 different historical sites in Lexington. On the Missouri River you can see where Lewis and Clarke camped on their trip into the "wild"; there is this historical Battle Of Lexington site where you'll learn how the Union Army fought off the Confederate Army (with one of the only black plattoons!); around the corner from the house is a site where the plattoon fought off troops coming up hill from the river, using hemp bales as cover; there is Wentworth Military school ( I often threaten to send my children there!); and don't forget to see the cannonball stuck in the Court House!
After you've spent some time there, you'll have a desire to buy one of the grand old homes! (I keep trying to convince my husband we need another project!)
Definately worth the trip. Great for children and adults. There are a couple of war memorials that you shouldn't miss, either. (One has lots of stairs, though!)
This is just a stone's through from KC.
