The Woolworth, F.W., Building was a historic department store building located in Lexington, Kentucky, that served as a retail location for the F. W. Woolworth Company from 1946 to 1990. It was designed by Frederick W. Garber.

The store was the site of protests during the Civil Rights Movement against segregation during the 1960s.

After 1990, the city government favored creating a business incubator on the site.[1] However, the building was demolished in 2004 and turned into a parking lot.[2]
