Located in eastern Covington, Austinburg is well connected by highways, two rivers, and well maintained neighborhood streets. Area residents enjoy access to public transportation systems and many major attractions. Built on a human scale, convenient corner stores provide for the impulse buy, or one last forgotten ingredient. A comprehensive network of smaller streets gives pedestrians, cyclists, and motorist the enjoyable feeling of being in the outdoors.
Much of Austinburg is designated as the Austinburg Historic District (NR February 1987). Named after Seneca Austin who in 1844 purchased a sizable tract of land lying along the Licking River. He later subdivided the land and sold parcels as Covington continued to grow. Today, new generations of people interested in urban living are rediscovering this historic neighborhood. Homes range from nineteeth century, to twentieth century Eclectic.
Today, homes in Austinburg exist for every income level. From market-rate homes to affordable, ownership to rental, everyone will find a home that meets their needs in this neighborhood. Seneca Place is the first new housing project in Austinburg in decades. The homes are row style, have three bedrooms and two and half baths. These homes are energy star rated, superbly insulated with hybrid heating systems and can be built start to finish in 12 weeks. These homes start in the $140's. More information Seneca Place can be found at sencaplace.com.
Unique among urban neighborhoods, Austinburg displays numerous and diverse green spaces maintained through cooperation between the City of Covington and Austinburg residents: Austinburg Neighborhood Park with baseball field; community-built Maryland Millennium Playground at Sixth District School; Austinburg Gateway Garden along Fifteenth Street at Maryland Avenue; "tot-lots," and basketball courts. These green spaces are safe places for neighborhood children and families to socialize and play.
