Taylortown (Lexington, KY)
The community was developed in the late 1860s, growing to encompass lots on Margaret Wickliffe Preston's property. Preston was the widow of William Preston. In 1889, two years after her husband's death, Preston sold lots at the front of her property. Her home and the lots were bound by Jefferson, Second, Third, and Georgetown Streets. For more see J.
