The Townhouse

A Event Venue with History


The Townhouse has had a rich history since the beginning. Built by Amos Shinkle, President of the Covington-Cincinnati Bridge Company who helped finance the Roebling Suspension Bridge, in 1854 The Townhouse as served as a home, bed and breakfast, and now Covington's newest event venue. The Meckstroth family purchased this house in July 2023 and will be using the home as their primary residence as well as a venue to connect people to the community, celebrate life events, and learn a little history along the way.
