UK Stomping Grounds: Lexington Then and Now

The current exhibition, "UK Stomping Grounds: Lexington Then and Now," a collection of historic photographs and postcards featuring well-known Lexington hangouts, restaurants, shopping locations and landmarks, each paired with a current street view, opens on Wednesday, 27 August 2014.

"UK Stomping Grounds" provides a unique perspective on how the area near UK's campus and Lexington have changed through the years, along with a glimpse of many beloved historic buildings that still fill the landscape. Photographs of downtown, West Sixth, Limestone, and Woodland Avenue stand out in the exhibit, as well as places now known as Joe Bologna's, Parlay Social and the Lexington Opera House.

The Margaret I. King Library and exhibits are open to the public Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
