A creative alternative to Newton County’s many “cookie cutter” apartment complexes, the Porterdale Mill Lofts are an adaptive new use of the Textile Mill and Cotton Warehouse facilities built over a century ago in Porterdale Georgia. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, these buildings have been meticulously restored in compliance with the historic renovation standards of the Department of the Interior. 4 buildings house over 100 lofts and a separate section has both retail and restaurant shops.
With the historic Newton County Courthouse as a backdrop, downtown Covington’s square is bustling with specialty shopping and unique dining opportunities. The district enjoys a long tradition of family owned and operated businesses and an impressive events calendar that truly showcase the best of small town America.
