East End Explorations

We are thrilled to announce the start of 

East End Explorations
Free Bus Tours of Lexington's Historic East End
Led by Local Historian Yvonne Giles

What is the true, diverse history of the area known as the East End? What stories lies on each corner, behind each door, under each street sign? What are we missing each time we drive through this downtown neighborhood? 

Inspired by our original series East End Walking Tours, The Lyric wanted to start a program that would show off the rich, diverse history of our beloved neighborhood with all the comfort and experience possible. Enjoy this FREE series and hear the unsung stories of the famed occupants, historical events, and special landmarks that make the neighborhood such a unique location, all told by lifelong resident and local historian Yvonne Giles. 

Tours will occur
July 15, August 19, September 16, and October 21
8:30 am - 10:30 am
Participants will meet at The Lyric and the bus tour will commence from there.

This series is FREE and open to the public, but registration is required. 30 positions are available for each tour. Registration can be completed by calling (859) 280-2218 or register online by clicking this link.
