Northern Kentucky’s Dixie Highway is a slice of Americana pie. Known also as U.S. 25 and the Lexington-Covington Turnpike, the once-rural route connects the urban cores of Cincinnati, Covington, and Newport to Central Kentucky. Originally a buffalo trail and named in the early 1800s, the route became a paved national highway in the 1920s. The creation of the thoroughfare encouraged the growth of several communities along its route that still thrive today. This book captures historic images of the people and places along the Dixie Highway, beginning in Covington and heading south through Boone County. The 200 photographs—some dating back to the mid-1800s—depict time’s influence while offering readers a chance to revisit the friends, familiar sites, and memorable times enjoyed along Northern Kentucky’s Dixie Highway.
