This was sight number 1 in Covington, the Newton County Courthouse, built in 1884.
The small town of Covington, situated about thirty miles or so east of Atlanta turned out to be our last stop of the day. This nice little town has a wonderful historic district. And the town’s visitors bureau has made up a little map and directions that made the drive around the area quite fun and easy. There were 49 homes and buildings listed on the tour guide, and each one had a paragraph about the sight. We got about forty pictures of some terrific homes and other special old spots. I have tried to identify each picture we took but have not yet been able to. I will continue to try.
Then we decided to use this as our end for the day and located a nice hotel to stay in. It is the Baymont Inn & Suites.
Then into the newer part of town to eat at the Royal Palace. A nice Chinese Buffet with lots of selections and good taste.
