Ritte's Corner Historic District

On the National Register Historic Districts*,

contains more than 82 acres with 43 buildings. The heart of the district is at the intersection of Decoursey, Southern and Winston Avenues. The area is significant for architecture, transportation and commerce between 1875 and 1945. The majority of buildings in the district were constructed between
1880 and 1930 as Latonia grew and prospered at the turn of the century. The corner was named for the Ritte’s family that constructed a building at 3634
Decoursey ca. 1885. This imposing structure was one of the earliest and largest brick structures in the community and it housed the popular Ritte’s saloon for many years.” The corner is anchored by four historic buildings and the Korean War Memorial with
fountain.

*”The National Register of Historic Places is the official list of the nation’s historic places worthy of preservation. The initiative’s goal is to coordinate and support public and private efforts to identify, evaluate, and protect America’s historic …archeological
resources.”

Vietnam Fallen Memorial

The new memorial is a full-blown place of reflection whose dedication represents the culmination of a vision and tireless effort by the leaders of two veterans organizations in Covington – American Legion Post 203 and Marshall-Schildmeyer VFW Post 6095 – and others who were part of the Covington Vietnam Fallen Memorial Committee. Located at 38th and Church streets and Decoursey Avenue in Latonia.

The Korean War Memorial Plaza at Ritte’s Corner

The plaza showcases a two-tiered ornamental fountain, a brick wall with antique iron fencing and iron benches from Stewart Ironworks. A bronze plaque mounted on the wall lists the names of local soldiers who gave their lives in Korea. The plaza is paved with bricks commemorating veterans of the Korean and other wars, as well as Latonia neighbors and supporters. The planning, fund raising and construction of the plaza was led by VFW Post 6095 and Ritte’s East Neighborhood Group. The project was constructed by local contractors and members of the International Union of Bricklayers. The union members graciously donated their labor and expertise. Well-known local architect, Andy Piaskowy, donated the design. Funding for the project came from private donors, the City of Covington and Kenton County Fiscal Court.
