582 West Main Street 
Main Street Baptist Church
Originally the Independent Baptist church, the foundation for Main Street Baptists was anchored in 1862--one year before the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation .  Since 1870, the quaint and historic church has been at its present location.  Situated next door to the Mary Todd Lincoln House, this notable place of worship has served as a prominent institution in the Lexington community.  It is a major landmark in the downtown section of the city.
