Attractions

Lexington attractions:

The town is noted for its Gazebo on the Square surrounded by handsome landscaping. Nearby is the Pioneer Village Museum, Circa 1850, consisting of two Lee County log cabins and log barn. Please check ahead of time for hours of operation. The Lexington Community Chamber of Commerce provides details on annual events held there, including the annual homecoming held the first week in May. Jerry Posten has built in his store-room a huge replica of that city as it appeared in the mid-forties when he was growing up. When they have high school class reunions in Lexington, everybody crowds into Jerry's room to point at things they remember, reminisce, and cry a little. An electric train runs on tracks exactly where the "Dinky" passenger train used to run. The Dinky consisted of an engine and one passenger/mail car that made a daily run from Yoakum to Elgin and back. Along the way it picked up a metal canister of Blue Bell ice cream in Brenham for delivery to the drugstore fountain in Lexington. Jerry Posten had the job of picking up the new canister off the train and replacing the old one in the drugstore. His pay was all the leftover ice cream. Call (409) 773-4337 for more information.
