Do any of you know anything about the brick home that is sitting on the south side of Rt. 60 near Hamburg? I guess they plan to demolish it. =(

I'm interested in the history of Hamburg Place and other BIG farms. Any book suggestions?

It looks to me like they are going to develop part of the property between the house and the interstate off ramp. I am sure it will eventually be torn down, but I would think if they were doing it now it would have already been done. Plus, they have only cleared part of the land.

A friend of mine drove up to the house, thinking it was vacant. The occupant lives over the detached garage according to my friend.

I am interested in the history too. I am sure it was waaaaaaay outside of Lexington when it was built. I hate to see it go, but you can't stop progress. Even the classic old neighborhoods well inside New Circle Road were once somebody's farm that suffered a similar fate.
