Welcome to the Historic Northside, one of Lexington's most vibrant and diverse neighborhoods.  Bounded by Limestone Street and Newtown Pike on east and west and by the Beltline Railway and Second Street on north and south, the Northside encompasses many of the micro neighborhoods that are the crown jewels of Lexington's architectural history:  Gratz Park, Fayette Park, Hampton Court, Elsmere Park, Mulberry Hill, and the beautiful corridors of West Second and Third Streets.

The Northside Neighborhood Association is Lexington's oldest.   In 2011 the Association celebrated 50 years of dedication to the preservation of the Northside's rich cultural heritage and the quality of life of its eclectic residents.  The result is a twenty first century Northside, where 200 years of American history, passionately maintained, is energized by hip urban renewal.  Art galleries, friendly taverns, sumptuous restaurants, top rated inns, a new microbrewery, a lively music scene, and planned contemporary development blend seamlessly with tradition in the Northside.  And at the center of it all is Transylvania University, where a first class modern liberal arts education is served up on a campus that holds the ghosts of Henry Clay, Jefferson Davis, John C. Breckenridge, Stephen Austin, and Cassius M. Clay.  That's the Northside:  A place where History and Community Meet. 

We're so glad you came to our neighborhood.  Take a tour, book a carriage ride, learn about our past, savor our architecture, enjoy a night out.  Better yet, come live and work with us and be a part of history.

Northside Neighborhood Association's
2015 Historic House and Garden Tour

This is a great opportunity to show to the rest of Lexington why the Northside Neighborhood is the city's best place to live, work and play.  

This year's tour is scheduled for Sunday, May 17th 2015 and if you live in the Northside we need your help.  As always, we need Northsiders to make their homes available for touring.  As a reminder, the neighborhood boundaries are Limestone and Newtown Pike, east and west, and the Beltline Railway and Second Street, north and south.   

Please get involved.  The 2013 tour attracted approximately 700 people who enjoyed an intimate look at our diverse neighborhood.  They gave the tour rave reviews and tour home owners had a great time.  

If you would like your home and/or garden to be considered for inclusion in the tour, please contact Eva Ensmann, Special Events committee chair  at evaensmann@gmail.com or (510) 709-8484 by February 15th.  Hope you'll join us.
