William E. Ashbrook, the house’s first owner, was born on Oct. 13, 1820, in Clarke County.

In adulthood Ashbrook bought and sold stock at stockyards and during the Civil War, William managed Covington’s stockyards.

On Nov. 20, 1860, Ashbrook married Mary Owen. The couple had five children and their family moved into an Italianate house which was constructed in the late 1860s. Today that house is the Ashbrook.

Ashbrook later served on the city council for several years and four years as the waterworks commissioner. He was later elected Director of the City National Bank on Jan. 10, 1882.

William Ashbrook died on June 10, 1882, at age 61. Ashbrook’s Will bequeathed the house to his widow, Mary, and their children.

Years after his death, the house served as a lodge meeting place for the Prince Hall Masons. Different families owned the house after the Ashbrook family.

The 5,300-square-foot, three-story, single-family house is on 0.39 square acre and features a two-car garage. There are 13 rooms and six operable fireplaces, all with newer firebrick fireboxes, in the place.
