The Agricultural and l\lechanical College oi Ken-
tucky is established on the City Park grounds of the
city of Lexington, given to the Commonwealth for this
purpose. The site is eleqvated, and commands a good
view of the city and surrounding country. A new col-
lege building will be erected during the summer of the
present year, containing commodious chapel, society
rooms, lecture and recitation rooms sullicient for the
f accommodation of Soo students. A large and well
gi ventilated dormitory will also be built, with rooms for
72 students, for the use of the appointees sent by the
Legislative Representative Districts ofthe State to the
I scicntyic or classical departments of the College, and
containing suitable dining-room, kitchen, matron’s and
it servants’ rooms. The natural conformation of the I
if ground and an abundant supply of water from the old
Maxwell spring, render the construction of an artificial
5 lake, with boating course a quarter of a mile in length,
comparatively easy, thus providing for a beautiful sheet
of water to add to the attractions ot the landscape.
YT Lexington is now the most important railroad cen-
`Q ter in Kentucky, being in immediate communication
`E with Louisville, Cincinnati, Maysville, Chattanooga,
and with more than 70 counties in the Commonwealth.
