Few places in Covington, Ky., illustrate this city’s proud past, recent struggles and current renewal more eloquently than the Hellmann Lumber building.

Erected in 1877, the lumber mill was a vital part of Covington, manufacturing the millwork that trimmed many of the city’s houses. Incorporated in 1815, Covington boasts elegant townhouses along the Licking River but suffered population decline after World War II. In 2001, the Hellmann family sold the business and closed its Covington operation.
