Covington Houses That Talk!

In 1973 Carol Harrison Jahncke delighted area residents with a series of articles featuring Covington houses that talk, giving their history in an imaginary conversation. It covered many buildings in the downtown Covington area.

Carol also wrote another "Houses That Talk" style book about her own place north of Covington. The title of the book was "Homeplace, A Love Affair," and in it she had a conversation with her own house and the property upon which it was built.
