Lexington was originally part of the Gunston Hall plantation land tract. It was given to George Mason's eldest son, George Mason V, in 1774. In 1775, George Mason V named his plantation to commemorate the Battle of Lexington in Massachusetts. The mansion at Lexington was probably not constructed until after George Mason V returned from a trip to Europe in 1783.
George Mason V's eldest daughter Elizabeth Mary Ann Barnes Mason (9 March 1785–25 March 1827) married Alexander Seymour Hooe, son of Seymour Hooe and Sarah Alexander, at Lexington on 22 April 1802.
