Drive down W. 12th Street in Newport, KY, and you will find a Victorian-era tiny house about every third house or so. Some are brick, most are wood frame, some are well-maintained, others need work, but all are a view into Newport’s past. Set on postage-stamp size lots, these little itty bitty houses are being restored as part of a national trend embracing small living spaces.
Our featured home may be called a tiny house today, but when it was built in 1905, it was known as a shotgun house. Some have had additions over the decades, at the turn of the century laborers from Newport and Covington who worked just across the Ohio River in Cincinnati had these inexpensive tiny homes built for their families. Today, these historic homes are being bought up by investors and retired persons and don’t stay long on the market. Once restored they often command prices that exceed $100K.
