Covington, Kentucky: Flying Saucer House - Futuro

Parking spots make for an easy stop, and Apple maps got us there without any issues. Great view of the city at night.

Flying Saucer House - Futuro

The Futuro house is now easier to pick out on the hillside as you come over the Brent Spence Bridge from Cincinnati. There is a new hotel at the bottom of the hill, easily visible because the walls are bright white. Look immediately upward from that, and you'll see the little silver house perched among the trees.

This is visible from the bridge on 71 from Ohio to Kentucky. Best view traveling south on the bridge, it is to the west side, nestled into the hillside. Very cool.

UFO House

Lived in Cincinnati my whole life and never realized this was here! It has parking in the front, complete with a handicap spot...which makes me wonder if they are making this a little bar or something. Very cute and unique!

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.
