The neighborhood also includes the Stewart Ironworks family home, which is currently operated as a motel, and the former railroad round house; which is now part of Duro Bag.

The area has seen several rehab projects and improvements, such as the Mutual Supply building on Neave alley. It has been renovated and occupied by Analytical Solutions and Providers. The area is centrally located in the city, and is convenient to a local grocery store and other services, and is on a main bus route.

The neighborhood association meets every third Thursday evening. The current effort is focused on smart development planning, community building, neighborhood safety and beautification. The association is also working with relevant agencies to create neighborhood focal points, riverfront access, and a dedicated walking/bike trail along the river to downtown Covington.
