Michael C. Motch, an immigrant from France, opened his first jewelry store in Covington in 1857.  The current store, built in  1871, was designed by James W. McLaughlin and remains an architectural gem. The front of the store has two immense glass windows surrounded by silver plated frames. The floor is alternative blocks of white and black marble. Two marble top counters run the entire length of the room, on which rest silver mounted show cases, containing watches and jewelry of exquisite workmanship and a dazzling display of rare gems. As you drive by the store you will notice on the sidewalk the E. Howard and Co. cast iron clock. This site is on the Historic Tour. Open to the public •
