Posted on January 2, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by
Ironworkers Doug Sloan, left and John Baker, fastened two steel beams together 14 stories up on the Kincaid Tower building in downtown Lexington in early June 1978. They were two of about 30 ironworkers putting the steel structure of the building together. Kincaid Tower, a 22-story office building, on the southeast corner of Broadway and Vine Street, was completed in 1979 at a cost of $20 million and was the tallest building in Central Kentucky for eight years. The building became the headquarters for Kentucky Central Life Insurance. It also housed Central Bank and Trust, WVLK Radio and Kentucky Finance Company. Photo by Ron Garrison | Staff
