Built in 1890, Posey Flats was a Queen Anne style luxury apartment building where many affluent people from the Cincinnati area lived. The apartments were built by investor Lewis O. Maddox and were the first of their kind in Newport. The buildings were added to the National Register of Historic Places.
In 1999, the buildings were demolished to make way for the Newport Aquarium and Newport on the Levee. Photos of what the buildings looked like can be found here.
