Considered one of the most well-preserved historic neighborhoods in Greater Cincinnati, Newport’s East Row contains excellent examples of late-19th- and early-20th-century city houses, while playing a leading role in the development of Northern Kentucky. In 1795, General James Taylor inherited about 1,500 acres along the Ohio River from his father and decided to pioneer the site with his wife, Keturah Moss Leitch. It was during the 1870s and 1880s when Newport’s east side flourished and wealthy business owners built impressive Italianate, Queen Anne, and Colonial Revival houses. Newport eventually became a thriving streetcar suburb of downtown Cincinnati.
