The Davidson County Historical Museum is located in the center of Uptown Lexington's Historic District. It is housed in the Davidson County Courthouse, an impressive Greek Revival structure built in 1858 on the Square. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Old Courthouse is one of the few historic properties in the county that is open to the public.
