Gateway City: Covington, Kentucky, 1815-2015
Tenkotte, Claypool and Schroeder


This bicentennial history of Covington, Kentucky, presents an overview of an important gateway city. At times, this gateway has pointed in different directions, and, at other times, it has vacillated between innovation and complacency. Like other transitions or gateway regions, the residents of Covington have sought their fortunes with the prevailing winds of change. Initially, Covington served as a “Gateway to the West,” then as a “Gateway between the North and the South,” followed by a “Gateway to the North,” and most recently as a “Gateway to Progress.”

Gateway City studies the growth and development of a city within the context of national and regional events, particularly those affecting a border region. Lying on the southern shore of the Ohio River opposite Cincinnati, Ohio, Covington is part of a vibrant metropolitan region of 2.1 million people. With Cincinnati, it shares a common destiny as a transition area, a border region that has acted as a geological, climatological, historical, and cultural “gateway.”

In a 21st-century global economy, where cultures collide, connect and collaborate, the study of how historic border regions have functioned can inform modern decision-making. Border areas like Covington and Cincinnati have long struggled with—and turned to their advantage—the challenges and opportunities afforded by cultural, political, and economic differences. The resultant innovations have fueled their economic prosperity, as well as their cultural diversity.

With the exception of the US-Mexico border region, few transitional areas within the continental United States have been studied for their historical lessons. This book offers a glimpse of the historical themes underlying an interior border region, and one that was vitally important during the Civil War.
