Stewart Iron Works was founded in 1886 and is the second oldest continuously operating ironworks in the country.  It has been an important part of Covington History and is one of 45 century-old businesses in the State of Kentucky as recently recognized by the Kentucky Humanities Council.  Billed at the turn of the last century as the “World’s Largest Fencemaker”, their wrought iron gates, railings, benches and fountains grace fine homes, gardens, parks and cemeteries in not only our area but cities such as New York, New Orleans, Charleston and Savannah as well as abroad.  The Stewart Iron Works Shield can also be found on historic sites including the President Hayes Memorial Library, the Panama Canal, the British Embassy and jail cells at Alcatraz.  They have a fascinating collection of antique architectural drawings of their products in ink on linen, which will be exhibited in addition to artifacts and memorabilia of the company from the 1880’s forward.

            The Baker-Hunt Foundation was established in 1922 in a privately endowed perpetual trust for the promotion of education, the arts and sciences by Margaretta Baker-Hunt.   It is located in a Georgian Style mansion, the former home of its founder, with additional buildings and studio space obtained over the years on landscaped grounds in the Historic Licking Riverside Neighborhood of Covington.  Adult and youth classes are offered throughout the year in drawing, painting, quilting, photography, pottery and other arts media.
