The Friends’ Mission…
To enhance the Lexington County Museum through its duly appointed commission and to support, aid and assist in the improvement and expansion of the Museum.
The Friends is a non-profit group founded in 1997 with an advisory board, officers, and a board of trustees representing all municipalities in the county. The Friends sponsors fund-raising projects to help further the Museum’s valuable contribution to the county. See below for upcoming events.
The Museum opened in 1970 as a cooperative effort by Lexington County government and the Lexington County Historical Society to collect, preserve, display, and research objects pertaining to our county’s history. It is located on Fox Street in the heart of Lexington.
