Enchanting Itty-Bitty Fairy Doors Are Hidden All Over Newport's East Row Historic District

Myth is becoming reality along the streets of Newport, Kentucky. On your next stroll through the East Row Historic District, look for tiny doors hidden along storefronts and sidewalks. These Tinkerbell-sized porticos are the entrances to the homes of fairies. Typically thought of as forest denizens, these little pixies have moved to the city to charm the Newport community. Avid hunters can join the Newport Fairy Doors Facebook Group to report their findings or use it to start plotting their search. (Many of these are on private property so we aren't providing addresses.)
