The Worst Flood in Lexington's History

The worst flood in Lexington's history occurred on 2 Aug 1932. On that day water from the Town Branch rosed and covered Main Street with over three feet of water. The water flooded basements, and did considerable damage to the stores, hotels, banks, and other businesses that lined Main Street. The damage from the flood was estimated at over 1 million dollars.
