(Did you mean a different Lexicon?)

Lexicon (so-called because it was first held in Lexington, MA) was NESFAs summer relaxacon started in 1972. (See Codclave for NESFA’s winter relaxacon.) It was basically a weekend-long con suite held somewhere somewhat interesting. After NESFA bought a clubhouse and started meeting more frequently, interest in the summer outing waned. Lexicon ran until at least 1989.
