Newport is a major urban center of Northern Kentucky and part of the Cincinnati metropolitan area, which includes over two million residents. Newport was established as a town on December 14, 1795, and incorporated as a city on February 24, 1834. In May 1999 the $40-million Newport Aquarium opened, and the historic Posey Flats apartments were leveled in favor of the Newport on the Levee entertainment complex, which opened the following year. Today, Newport is becoming the entertainment community of the fast-growing Northern Kentucky area while its neighboring citiesBellevue and Covingtonbecome the business centers. In 2010, Newport successfully lobbied the state legislature for an exception to state law, which both required that a county seat be located in the center of the county, and that county business only be conducted at the county seat. In August 2011, the Supreme Court of Kentucky granted Newport equal status as a county. On November 24, 2010, the Kentucky General Assembly removed the Kentucky Courthouse from the appellate review decision, and Newport is now the only county seat of Campbell County. In November 2009, the state Supreme Court ruled that Alexandria is not a county county seat and that Newport is not an equal county. In the 19th century, the overwhelming majority of the population lived in Newport and the surrounding cities. Many citizens did not like traveling south to Alexandria to conduct county business, as southern Campbell County was primarily undeveloped.

In 1997 plans for a 1,015-foot (309 m) structure called the "Millennium Tower" were revealed. The tower's main selling point was that building it would be financed by private money, as opposed to taxpayer money. The site for the tower was expected to be completed by 2003, but investors later pulled out and no construction was done. Today, Newport is becoming the entertainment community of the fast-growing Northern Kentucky area while its neighboring citiesBellevue and Covingtonbecome the business centers. In 2009, General Assembly ruled that Alexandria was not a county seat, and Newport was granted equal county seat status.
