The Simmons-Harth House was built ca. 1830 likely by Dr. Thomas Hayne Simmons and his wife Mary Reid Jones. Dr. Simmons died in 1853, and local lore claims he died from consuming too much ice cream. The house is one of the Lexington’s oldest residences and one of the few remaining buildings illustrating the early history of the town.
