History of Covington

Covington features the Oatka Creek’s emergence from a tightly defined valley to a broad plain bordered by gentle uplands. The town’s picturesque rolling hills fall off toward the Genesee Valley to the east and the Oatka Valley to the west. This naturally attractive area was named for General Leonard Covington and was permanently settled in 1806.
