In reading about Lexington, Wilmore was mentioned as a conservative place to live. Is it close enough to be feasible to work in Lexington or is there another closer alternative for a protestant, conservative family that wants to be free of a lot of governmental regulations?

Wilmore is an easy commute to Lexington via a mostly four-lane road (Harrodsburg Road). Of course, Lexington is a largish place, and working on the south side of town will be much easier than working downtown or elsewhere for a Wilmore resident. Wilmore is about twenty minutes from Man o' War Boulevard, give or take a few minutes.

Nicholasville (the county seat of Jessamine County, where Wilmore is located) is even closer. It's much smaller than Lexington but larger than Wilmore, which is a pretty little town which is strongly influenced by the presence of Asbury University and (United Methodist) Seminary. While United Methodism is generally considered a middle-of-the-road, moderately liberal denomination, Wilmore's version definitely tilts right. Wilmore has a well-regarded public elementary school (part of the Jessamine County School system), but older children are bused into Nicholasville.

Wilmore is certainly predominantly Protestant and quite socially and religiously conservative, but I am not sure what you have in mind re. "governmental regulations". You're still going to have to abide by local, state, and federal laws and regulations in Wilmore, including taxes and licenses of various kinds, plus construction-related regulations if you are thinking of building a house or having one built. Local regulations differ slightly from county to county - local businesses pay county taxes in Jessamine County, in addition to state and federal taxes.

Hope this answers some of your questions.
