Lexington Then and Now

Author: Fiona Young-Brown

Situated in the heart of Kentucky’s Bluegrass Region, Lexington is known as a cultural center throughout the state. The city, with its strong sense of history, education, and commerce, has undergone dramatic change, making way for development and progress with each new decade. Fiona Young-Brown a freelance writer and researcher, has been a Lexington resident since 2001. Capturing the city’s past and present, she has created a book that recalls what has been gained and lost in historic Lexington.

Comparing our present to our past is how we understand our history. Arcadia’s Then & Now series makes such local comparisons available. Books in this series offer a special view of American life by placing historical images side by side with contemporary photographs.
