The City of Covington, founded in 1813, is a charming Southern community nestled among three rivers. An eclectic mix of boutiques, art galleries, specialty shops and restaurants line the downtown streets. Special care has been taken to ensure the conservation of Covington's historic homes and buildings while also allowing for the modernization of its infrastructure. The downtown historic district is home to many turn-of-the-century cottages surrounded by ancient oaks and South Louisiana's lush, green foliage. In Covington, we celebrate our history and culture through music, food and the arts. We take time to enjoy the many concerts and special events that take place here. But it's the strong sense of community, of civic pride, that is the lifeblood of this town.
