Shinkle Row

These Renaissance Revival townhouses with pediment doorways and cornice window heads are known as Shinkle Row, c. 1880.  The builder of this row, Amos Shinkle, was a well-known entrepreneur of the nineteenth century. He was also involved in the building of the Suspension Bridge as well as numerous other real estate ventures both in Kentucky and Ohio.  These Second Street units are believed to have housed Suspension Bridge workers.
