Lexington, Missouri, was once the home of the Wentworth Military Academy, a U.S. military junior college that operated from 1880 to 2017. The grounds of the academy were sold at auction after its closure. However, downtown Lexington now has a museum dedicated to the academy’s history. The Wentworth Military Academy Museum on Main Street proudly displays exhibits from the college. This includes the stained-glass windows once featured in its chapel.
