Lexington is made up of a great many distinctive, beautiful, and in many cases historic neighborhoods. For example, Lakewood Estates is full of beautiful and expensively appointed homes, while Ashland Park is loaded with early twentieth century history and also contains the home of Kentucky statesman Henry Clay. Athens is an unincorporated village, founded in 1786 in the rural area surrounding Lexington. And no matter what neighborhood you choose, you will find your new home in Lexington to be nearby both the central commercial core of the city, and an iconic horse farm. It's a planning challenge that city has faced for some time: how to maintain Lexington's historic charm as a horse breeding center, while growing and keeping up with the economics of the times, though the city has been highly successful. The city has one of the highest percentages of educated citizens in the United States and is home to Transylvania University, the University of Kentucky, Sullivan University, Strayer University, the Bluegrass Community and Technical College, and a great many more two-year and four-year post-secondary institutions of learning. Additionally, several neighboring cities and towns are home to other local universities and colleges.
