The historical marker honoring Jacob Price was taken down and placed in storage in 2015 as the housing projects named for him were to be razed and replaced by River's Edge at Eastside Pointe. On May 20 of this year, the City of Covington held a re-dedication for the historical marker and placed it in this new location.
