Central Park, 1984

Posted on May 10, 2018 | in Uncategorized | by

What is now Phoenix Park at the corner of Main Street and Limestone, was originally called Central Park, seen here in October 1984. It was built on the former site of the Phoenix Hotel, which was demolished in 1981. The Lexington Public Library would later be built just to the right of the park, opening it’s doors in April 1989. The Robert F. Stephens Courthouse Plaza and Fayette Circuit and District court houses now occupy the block just north of Main Street. Photo by Tom Woods II | Staff
