Scott Street Methodist Episcopal Church, South
Scott Street Methodist was at 530-32 Scott.  The cornerstone was laid on August 13, 1843, and the building was
torn down in 1895.  While Methodism in Covington split along North-South lines in the Civil War, this
congregation, after a number of detours, would eventually merge with Covington's First United Methodist Church.
