The Licking Riverside Historic District is a historic district in Covington, Kentucky, that is on the National Register of Historic Places. Its boundaries are Fourth Street to the north, Scott Street, Eighth Street to the south, and the Licking River. Bungalow/Craftsman, Second Empire, and Italianate are the primary architectural styles of the district. The original boundary of Covington was Sixth Street, making the area of Licking Riverside one of the first boundary increases that Covington would make. The first prominent building in the district was the brick "fashionable" female academy operated by Doctor William Orr, built around 1846. Growth of the district first began north of Fifth Street. For most of its existence in the 20th century, the District has been spared the destruction of many of its historic buildings.       -
