The history of Lexington

The historic city of Lexington is located on the bluffs overlooking the Missouri River in Lafayette County, Missouri. Lexington was platted in 1822 near William Jack's Ferry, which had been established just three years earlier on the south bank of the river. The city was named after Lexington, Kentucky. The earliest settlers were primarily from Kentucky and Virginia. Later came German, Irish and Italian immigrants. The seat of Lafayette County since 1823, Lexington grew rapidly during the following decades due to its strategic location on the Missouri River. John Aull opened a mercantile store in 1822. A short time later, he was joined by his brothers, James and Robert. The Aull Brothers soon had one of the first frontier retail chains, operating stores in Liberty, Independence and Richmond.
