"Soon after, I returned home to my family, with a determination to bring them as soon as possible to live in Kentucky, which I esteemed a second paradise, at the risk of my life and fortune.

Blevins House, Lexington, Fayette County

The old white mansion that sits in the Maxwell Street Presbyterian Church’s back yard, now called the Blevins House (sold shortly after the property was acquired but repurchased in 1990) has undergone major renovations, repairs and landscaping over the years. Many mission and outreach activities have centered in the Blevins House – summer urban workcamps, refugee families, temporary housing for transient people, classes, and groups meet for fellowship and worship. Now college students are settling in to their own place on the third floor. Barbecues and picnics take place in the courtyards, back and front.
