Visitor Tips and News About Flying Saucer House - Futuro
There is a flying saucer house in Covington. I have seen it and showed it off to my friends since I was a little girl. Back in Feb. 2007 I actually drove to Kentucky just to show my best friend and prove to her that I am not crazy. For years I'd spot it from the bridge crossing into KY from OH.
It has been there since the early 60's, as far as I am told by family members. My mother went to school with the children of the first owners. Around Halloween the owners would dress up as aliens for trick or treaters.[Jill Whitt, 05/29/2007]
A guy I went to high school with lived in a little flying saucer house in Covington. You can still see it as you come south from Cincinnati over the Brent Spence Bridge, on the first hillside to the west (of course, it's easier in the wintertime, with no leaves on the trees). He had a Halloween party there once. BOY, WAS THAT THING SMALL. I do remember that it had a Mork-style egg chair in it....[Elizabeth U., 02/24/1999]
