The Lewisburg National Register District (NR November 1993) is located immediately west of I-71/75 with Pike Street running through the neighborhood. It consists of 450 buildings, which were built beginning in the 1840s, following the completion of the Lexington Turnpike (now Pike Street) from Covington. The district originally developed as a separate and self-sufficient community, due in large part to its physical separation from Covington by Willow Run Creek, now the site of the expressway. The district is characterized by its hilly terrain as well as its wide range of architectural styles juxtaposed with one another. Historically, the district was home to industrial and commercial uses, together with housing for working class to middle class Covingtonians.
This neighborhood is located in the western hills of Covington. Lewisburg is a National Register Historic District, has beautiful views of downtown Cincinnati and is convenient to I-75. Lewisburg is a pedestrian scale neighborhood and retains an Old World character with its eclectic housing stock. It is on the hillside adjacent to the recreational activities available in the 700 acre Devou Park.
The Lewisburg Neighborhood Association meets on the 4th Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at Prince of Peace School, 625 West Pike Street.
