About Us JOE BOLOGNA'S History The building at 120 West Maxwell Street that now houses Joe Bologna's Restaurant has an old and unique history. Along with the adjoining property, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The land, on the corner of Maxwell and Lawrence Streets, and between South Upper and Limestone Streets, was purchased in March, 1890, by the congregation of the First Presbyterian Church of Lexington. It was dedicated on April 17, 1891, as the Maxwell Street Presbyterian Church. By August, 1891, they had erected a "handsome brick church, trimmed in stone, lighted by gas, heated by a furnace and furnished with modern pews, capable of seating comfortably four hundred worshipers" (The Church Record).
