Day Three Hundred Forty-Seven

Notes: This former courthouse in Lexington, Kentucky, was built in 1899.  It served as the courthouse for Fayette County until 2001, when a new courthouse building was finished.  Two years later, the Lexington History Center moved into the building, followed by the Lexington Public Safety Museum and the Kentucky Renaissance Pharmacy Museum.  Unfortunately, the Center had to be closed after lead paint, asbestos, and mold were found in the building.  Yikes!  That's just a trifecta of badness.
