Amos Shinkle Carriage House, 215 Garrard Street

Located behind the historic Amos Shinkle home, this carriage house still has many of its original features, including part of a 150-year-old stable! It now serves as the home owners’ garage and guest house. The second floor is like being in your own little luxury hotel!

Amos Shinkle was a prominent businessman in the mid and late 1800’s. He helped to organize a bank, developed over 30 houses in Covington, built steamboats and brought gas lighting to the city. His biggest contribution, however, was being the “guiding light” for the building of the Roebling Suspension Bridge.

This house was recently a bed and breakfast, before being turned back into a private residence by the current owners.
