Located in the northern tip of Kentucky and fortuitously bordered by rivers on two sides, Newport has flourished for over 200 years. Col. James Taylor of Caroline County, Virginia, received a military grant for 1,500 acres, and his son Hubbard selected and surveyed a tract of wilderness along the Ohio River. This area was chosen and named Newport in honor of Christopher Newport, a British privateer who commanded several early expeditions to Virginia, including the voyage transporting the first permanent colonists to Jamestown. With the establishment of a diverse mixture of businesses and the arrival of German and Italian immigrants, Newport has grown over the years and developed into a thriving community.
