History: Town Branch Crossroads

Situated at a major crossroads of westward continental expansion, Lexington rapidly outgrew its village creek. In mere decades the little meandering creek was transformed into an industrial corridor with mills, stockyards, distilleries, and one of the nation’s first rail lines. The city remained firmly attached to the Town Branch corridor as a rail line along its banks replaced the creek as the city’s lifeline to the west. Like a ‘giving tree’ cut off at the stump, the Town Branch eventually gave up its daylight to the burgeoning city. Only the gurgling of the waters underneath and an occasional flood gave away its hidden presence.
