The village of Lexington celebrated its 200th birthday Wednesday with a birthday celebration held at the Lexington Branch of the Mansfield-Richland County Public Library at 25 Lutz Ave. The party kicked off with the ceremonial ringing of the village bells.    A mounted postmaster in period costume delivered a proclamation to Mayor Eugene Parkison who was joined by State Representative Mark Romanchuck to read the proclamation to all those in attendance.  The village had its first postmaster in July of 1813.
