“Gratz Park is a neighborhood and historic district that is just a block away from the Airbnb. It was named after early Lexington businessman Benjamin Gratz whose home stands on the corner of Mill and New streets at the edge of Gratz Park. I love to wander around this square, of beautiful historic houses. It’s a very peaceful part of downtown and a great place to sit and read a book. ”
