Westside

The Westside is a diverse historic neighborhood bounded by Pike Street on the north, I-75 on the west, 15th street on the south, and Madison avenue on the east. Historically, Covington's Westside was primarily a working class neighborhood housing trades people and artisans. There are many fine examples of Victorian era row houses built to accommodate the influx of population as Covington grew. Today, newer infill housing and rehabilitation of handsome 19th century buildings are increasingly attracting young professionals as well as empty-nesters.
