Given that I’m from Kentucky, when “Kentucky” appears in a sign, I’m a sucker. If the sign is on an historic building in one of my favorite small U.S. cities, I’m even more intrigued. jrodmanjr took this shot in Lexington, home of Mary Todd Lincoln and Henry Clay. This is a city steeped in history and horse-racing. If you’re ever there, park downtown so you can stroll through the neighborhoods to take in the granduer of buildings that can remind you of wedding cakes. Although Donna the Buffalo has already come and gone, The Kentucky Theatre, opened in 1922, shows first run movies and various performances year-round.
