Impressive Downtown Building
Circa 1880

The white stone Beaux Arts facade gives this building a strong presence in the downtown historic district. The large main floor has a beautiful two-story arched ceiling and original bank vault. Many impressive architectural details inside and out. This property most recently served as a restaurant but would be a wonderful retail location, as well.

This historic property is located in Lexington, Missouri, a friendly Missouri River town with a rich history that includes Russell, Majors and Waddell's outfitting of the Santa Fe Trail; the 1852 Steamboat Saluda disaster; and the 1861 Battle of the Hemp Bales. It was founded in 1822 and is located approximately 45 miles east of downtown Kansas City. Lexington is pleased to have four districts on the National Register of Historic Places and an impressive array of antebellum homes. It features many antique shops, restaurants and bed & breakfasts doing business in beautifully restored vintage buildings. Lexington is well known for the Civil War cannonball embedded in one of the grand columns of the 1847 Lafayette County Courthouse. This charming community offers history buffs and those who enjoy historic architecture an opportunity to step back in time.
