MEET: In the heart of Covington, Louisiana, stands the Southern Hotel, an integral part of the community for over a century. Celebrating its ten-year anniversary, the hotel not only reflects on a decade of success but also looks forward to an exciting future with the introduction of The Greenwood, a stunning event venue. Thanks to the restoration efforts of Lisa Condrey Ward and her husband, the Southern Hotel has not only preserved its rich heritage but also revitalized downtown Covington. We are celebrating its past and future in Celebrating 10 Years of the Southern Hotel in Covington. Join the Southern Hotel on June 1st, 2024, for an unforgettable evening filled with live entertainment and an open buffet and bar for their ten-year anniversary party.
