The Lexington County Museum is situated on seven acres and features 36 historic structures. The structures and furnishings focus on the early history of the county and interpret the daily lives of its residents from the mid- to late-1700s until the Civil War era. The museum is notable for its extensive collection of furniture, quilts, and pottery. Some of the historic structures include the original Lexington County post office, the oldest documented house in Lexington, and the house where the traditional song "Give Me That Old Time Religion" was composed. Most notable among the buildings is the 10-room, two-story John Fox House that was built in 1832.
