Located in the heart of Lexington, the Round Barn Stable of Memories is one of Lexington's historic landmarks and architectural treasures. This four-story barn was built adjacent to the Red Mile Racetrack in 1882, serving as an exhibition hall before being used to house horses for the races. After being restored as a museum, The Round Barn became a unique, historic location for special events. Offering a rustic but elegant atmosphere the Round Barn has a tremendous amount of charm with its circular design, indoor balcony, drapery, and bistro lights. A stunning chandelier suspended through the center creates a warm, welcoming ambiance over the dance floor.
