McConnell Springs

Description
Amenities
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.
