The backside of Turfland Mall, located on Harrodsburg Road in Lexington, July 10, 1998. The mall was Lexington's first enclosed shopping space when it opened in 1967. It closed in 2008. Part of the mall was converted into a Home Depot. The McAlpin's store shown on the right side of this picture later turned into a Dillards. Today, construction continues on turning that part of the mall into a new UKHealthCare facility.
