It was named after Lexington, Massachusetts, where the first battle of the Revolutionary War had just taken place. Not until 1779, however, did the first settlers, led by Col. Robert Patterson, arrive. They built a stockade, and in the spring of 1781 laid out Main Street. They cleared and planted land, and in 1781 elected their first Board of Trustees. The first meeting of the Trustees took place on Mar. 26, 1781.These are some early records of the Lexington, Ky. Board of Trustees. The records consist of an 1815 survey to determine the center of Main Street (52W22), and three court papers from the case of the Trustees vs. Richard Sharp (52W21), dating from 1780-1781, which detail the laying out of the town and the standards established for town lots.Chronological arrangement.Sharp, Richard.Lexington (Ky.).--Board of Trustees.Court records--Kentucky--Lexington.Public records--Kentucky--Lexington.Lexington (Ky.)--Politics and government.Surveys (land)--Kentucky--LexingtonLexington, Kentucky Board of Trustees records, 1780-1815
