I can’t find any information about Lexsy, but it was a small crossroads settlement at one time, with at least one general store. It had a post office from 1899-1967. This house was likely the largest in the area.

The plank walls are in relatively good shape; mantles have been removed from the fireplaces.

A shingle roof, likely added in the last 30 years to replace the tin or shake original, is probably the only reason the house is still standing.

I’m only guessing that this was a store. It doesn’t quite look like one, though. Perhaps it was a restaurant. I’ll identify it when I learn more.
