Exhibit 3: Photos,
Postcards & Prints
The Photos Collection includes more than 1,500
photographs, prints and postcards portraying life in Lexington during the
late 19th and early 20th centuries. Images in the Worthen Collection depict
Battle of Lexington reenactments and celebrations, historic properties and
landmarks, houses, town buildings, schools and businesses, and individuals
and groups. The Worthens collected photographs and took many pictures
themselves to document Lexington’s history as well as the ways in which the
town changed during their lifetimes.
Note: More images can be seen in the Lantern Slides exhibit.
