About Covington

Founded in 1813, Covington is a charming Southern community nestled among three rivers. An eclectic mix of boutiques, art galleries and restaurants line the downtown streets while historic homes have been preserved for future generations to enjoy.

In the late 20th century, with more roads being built in Louisiana, many people who lived and worked in New Orleans started to live closer to Covington.

This was due to a commute from work via Lake Pontchartrain Causeway which is only minutes away from where they were living.

With interstate expansion during that period of time; there was then an increase of population growth for this area such as housing becoming cheaper than before and also having larger lot sizes plus feeling like you are located within your own town again all around Jefferson Parish (Northshore).
