Small town area with a very home-like feel. Great school and community environment. Great place if someone is looking to settle down with a family.

Covington is such a loving and supporting community. We all come together to make Covington a better place. Everyone is so accepting of who you are, I have never been to a town like Covington's. It is such a blessing to grow up in this small, loving town.
It's a classic small town where everyone knows everyone. People are very friendly. Many of the houses and buildings are restored but kept the elegance and character of the building.
