Jimtown Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Jimtown is a small neighborhood that sits quietly off a country road in rural, northeastern Lexington. The few houses in Jimtown are of recent construction along Jimtown Lane, and all of the homes were built on large lots with trees. The rolling green Kentucky landscape gives this neighborhood a peaceful, country atmosphere.
The neighborhood is in zip code 40511, and Jimtown Lane is off Greenwich Pike near its intersection with Hume Bedford Pike. Residents can walk to Jimtown Baptist Church and Duncan Chapter United Methodist Church, which are within the neighborhood. Jimtown is in the Fayette public school district, and children living in the neighborhood can attend Russell Cave Elementary School, Winburn Middle School and Bryan Station High School. All of the schools are located along Russell Cave Road toward Lexington.
Jimtown is closer to the small town of Paris than to Lexington, and residents can find plenty of convenience shopping there. Paris is approximately five miles from the neighborhood, and it has a Wal-Mart Supercenter and a Food Lion. Downtown Paris is known for its shops and restaurants, including popular local eateries such as Migdalia’s and Varden’s. Twice a year, the town hosts the ARTWALK event to showcase the work of local artists, which can include everything from paintings to orchid collections. Paris is home to a local growers and farmers market twice a week.
Downtown Lexington and the University of Kentucky are a 30-minute drive from Jimtown. The university’s NCAA basketball team is a rallying point for area residents, and the school is hub of sporting events and arts productions. Residents can enjoy local music at Lexington’s annual Festival of the Bluegrass, which features musicians on three stages and a bluegrass music camp for children.
