Sometimes all you need is a stroll down a summer street. I don’t recommend standing in the middle of the street to get a shot, but if there are no cars coming, what’s the harm? Downtown Lexington offers many gems like this two block section of Second Street. The Bodley-Bullock mansion is on the left. It was built around 1814, and served as a private residence for most of its life. It was headquarters for both the Union and Confederacy during the Civil War (depending on who was occupying the city at the time). In the 1970’s, after Minnie Bullock died, the Junior League of Lexington began to lease the house for $1 a year. Today, it’s a museum, and available for rental for weddings and other receptions.
