COVINGTON
Georgia, U.S.A.
HOLLYWOOD OF THE SOUTH
Welcome to Covington, Georgia. This small city in Newton County is situated around 35 miles east of downtown Atlanta, and is home to approximately 13,000 people.
Covington was incorporated twice, first as a town in 1822 and then as a city in 1854. Covington is named in honor of celebrated war hero and US congressman Leonard Covington. Many historic structures still remain in Covington thanks to the city surviving the destruction during the Civil War. Today, it is widely known for its stunning architecture and charming surroundings. Highlights include the Newton County Courthouse, which is situated in the beautiful green landscape of Square Park in downtown. Covington has been named Main Street of Georgia, thanks to its diligent work in preserving historic structures. The city has also been referred to as Hollywood of the South, since its classic small town surroundings has been featured in over 56 movies and TV-shows. For instance, Covington was the location for one of the longest continuous series in history, In the Heat of the Night, with actress Carroll O'Connor. Downtown Covington is a vibrant spot with plenty of unique shopping and outstanding dining establishments. Historic buildings surround the lush Square Park where you can often enjoy concerts and sometimes community festivals. For outdoor recreation, visit the Oaks Course, which is situated in the middle of historic Covington and features an 18-hole course that has been named one of Georgia's top courses!
