The productivity of the bluegrass fields has kept Lexington's economy ticking over since 1775, though the lack of a navigable river has always made its traders vulnerable to competition from Louisville. However, its current affluence dates from after World War I, when Lexington emerged as the world's largest burley tobacco market, although its most conspicuous activity these days is the horse trade, with an estimated 450 farms in the vicinity. Consequently, Lexington feels quasi-rustic despite a population exceeding two hundred thousand and boasts many fine antebellum houses.
