The second largest historic district in Kentucky, the East Row Historic District features two neighborhoods in Newport. When Newport became a trading hub during the mid 19th century, mansions were built in East Row. This was a great marker of the affluence that helped the city grow more than 100 years ago.

The East Row Historic District is composed by Mansion Hill and Gateway neighborhoods. Both have stunning, century-old mansions that are built in various architectural styles. The most dominating motifs, however, were Italianate, Queen Ann, American Foursquare, and of Colonial Revival.

Today, tours are offered around the East Row Historic District. There are still tons of surviving structures, but most of them are privately owned and used for various purposes.
