Lee-Porter House, 1913, Covington

This house is a beautifully maintained exemplar of the Neoclassical Revival. It was built for Lester Lee, who resided here until 1924, when it was sold to the O. W. Porter family. Like many historic homes in Covington, the mansion has been used extensively as a set location for Hollywood productions over the years, including The Vampire Diaries, Bessie, and Sweet Magnolias, among others.
