Amos Shinkle Townhouse

Located at 215 Garrard St Covington, KY 41011   Navigate to Location

Built in 1854 by Amos Shinkle, this two-story Greco-Italianate townhouse has been fully restored. It served as a bed and breakfast for several years but is now a private residence.  Shinkle began his career as a cook on a flatboat and eventually became one of Covington’s wealthiest and most influential entrepreneurs and a key promoter of the John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge. He was a patron of Methodist churches and founded the Covington Protestant Orphanage using his personal funds. Elegantly furnished with period antiques, the house features vaulted ceilings 16 feet high and gorgeous four-poster, queen-sized beds in each of its six rooms. Listed on the National Historic Register, the Amos Shinkle TownHouse offers a quiet, riverside retreat. This site is on the Historic Tour and Architecture Tour. Not open to the public
