This is #MyOldKYHome

Me at #MyOldKYHome
I grew up in downtown Lexington in a home in which my parents still reside. It has been on the market of late and I haven't been able to bring myself as of yet to write its history for the site. I promise, it is coming. Here's a little bit of history, though.

The home sits on West Short Street in the Historic Western Suburb. The age of the original structure is unknown, though the front room was built in 1843. The architect of that addition was John McMurtry whose work is so prevalent and prominent in Lexington's downtown area.

My parents purchased the home in the early 1990s and I lived there from first grade through my first few years of college.

Without a doubt, it is - and always will be - My Old Kentucky Home.
