Covington & Newton County History Lives Here

Historic Homes Tour

As you begin to circle the Downtown Square, you will notice the historic Newton County Courthouse anchoring the northwest corner. Located at 1124 Clark Street, this beautiful Victorian Gem was constructed in 1884 and is a true testament to the style of the times. A study has been made of clock towers of this era and it was found that structures with an off-center tower are quite rare. The first courthouse originally stood in the center of the Square Park.
