Keeneland, Blue Grass Trust Team Up For New East End Virtual Walking Tour

Over the years it’s had many names: “Gunntown,” “Kinkeadtown,” and “Goodloetown,” and thanks to the talented and driven Black professionals in Lexington’s East End neighborhood, it was also a center for creation and growth for the horse racing industry in Kentucky. Now, Keeneland and the Blue Grass Trust for Historic Preservation are teaming up on a virtual walking tour of the area using a new state of the art phone app. For more details on this new project WUKY's Alan Lytle spoke with Brittany Sams, she’s a historic preservation specialist with the Blue Grass Trust For Historic Preservation.
