History

Purchased by the city in the 1920s, Castlewood Community Center has been a home for recreation in Lexington for nearly a hundred years. The gymnasium and adjoined space have been used as a community center for the city beginning in the 1930s and once housed the Division of Parks & Recreation. A new addition was added next to the gymnasium in 1981 to provide additional support space. Adjacent to the gymnasium, you will find the Loudon House, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and was built for Francis Key Hunt in 1852 (cousin of Star Spangled Banner composer Francis Scott Key). The Loudon House was part of the community center until the 1990s when the Lexington Art League moved into the space, and Parks & Recreation was relocated into the gymnasium building. The Loudon House now serves as offices and gallery space for Lexington Art League.
