    Basics about Lexington

    by acemj Updated Feb 8, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Lexington is only minutes from South Carolina's capital city, Columbia and has been around since the early 1800s. It was briefly occupied in 1865 by General Sherman's troops and many of its buildings were burned to the ground. The town quickly rebuilt and today boasts one of the best school districts in South Carolina (not that that is very impressive) and a fairly wealthy population base.

    Lexington is probably best known for the sprawling Lake Murray, a long lake full of recreational possiblities including boating and excellent fishing. You'll also find some beautiful and valuable homes surrounding the lake.

    Favorite thing: Lake Murray! It's huge, it's quiet (generally) and the fishin' is great!

    Fondest memory: Growin' up there before all of the subdivisions and Yuppies. Lexington was once a very small, quiet Southern town. I remember spending months running barefoot through the grass of my grandaddy's yard or pullin' peanuts for boiled peanuts. It's changed alot but I still love coming home!!!
