Frogtown was a southern Fayette county community on Tates Creek Road near Armstrong Mill Road, for many years within the city of Lexington. It is said to be named for abundant frogs on nearby West Hickman Creek. The area was also known as Fayetteville. Frogtown was later within Gainesway Farm, which became the Gainesway subdivision. A Kirklevington post office, named for a local farm, opened in the vicinity in 1888 and closed in 1900.
There is another Frogtown in the western part of the county.
