McConnell Springs

416 Rebmann Lane, Lexington, KY 40504

Originally a campsite for the first settlers in the Bluegrass, this 26-acre nature sanctuary features trails past natural springs, restored limestone fences constructed in the early 1800s, the remains of an historic grist mill and farm, and a quarry from which most of the stone for the buildings on the site was taken. Pioneers camped here named their site 'Lexington' after hearing of the first battle of the Revolutionary War. This 26 acre park provides a beautiful setting for special events of all types. The Education Center provides a setting for meetings or receptions of up to 75 guests. Large windows provide a picturesque view of the flower garden, fountain and bird sanctuary.
