Famous Barns

Red Mile’s Round Barn

The Red Mile’s Round Barn has been a proud piece of Lexington’s racing history since 1875.

On the day I arrived to meet her, she was in white linen and netting, dressed for a wedding that evening.  She shares many of the characteristics of other Victorian barns her age … brick with interior wood framing, solid and boldly reaching up nearly 40’.

With Paddock Park between the Round Barn and the Grandstands, you feel like you’re in the country.  But, look north and you can easily see downtown Lexington, which is an amazing view from the barn at night.
