Spalding’s Bakery, 1981

Posted on August 19, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

James Spalding held a tray of doughnuts at Spalding’s Bakery on March 27, 1981. The popular bakery known for its hand-cut, honey-glazed doughnuts has been a Lexington staple for more than eight decades. James Spalding retired after he was attacked by an armed robber in 2004. The bakery closed for a brief time but reopened on Winchester Road across from the Jif peanut butter factory in 2005. Today, James’ sister and her two daughters, two of her grandchildren, a nephew, and other relatives and employees bake fresh doughnuts and other items each day. Photo by John C. Wyatt | Staff
