43. Carneal House

Built in 1815, this is believed to be the oldest structure in Covington. The home was originally built for Aaron Gano whose brothers helped found the city and was later occupied by Thomas Carneal who along with the Gano brothers purchased the 150 acres of land West of the Licking River which became the city of Covington. This house also has a tunnel which leads to the Licking River which was used to help slaves escape as part of the Underground Railroad.
