Lexington, was first settled in 1774, is the county seat of Oglethorpe  County.  In the heart of Lexington stands the courthouse.  Constructed  in 1887 and listed on the National Register of Historic places, it is  the oldest courthouse of this architectural style in Georgia.  The  Lexington National Register Historic District encompasses virtually the  entire city. There is a walking tour of the town that includes numerous  historical buildings and homes. The Joseph Lumpkin House, circa 1790, is  the oldest documented house and the home of the first chief justice of  the Georgia Supreme Court. The Lexington Presbyterian Cemetery contains  the graves of prominent Georgia politicians: George Rockingham Gilmer, a  governor of Georgia; Wilson Lumpkin, also a governor of the state; and  Joseph Henry Lumpkin, a founder of the Lumpkin School of Law at the  University of Georgia.
