The Water Street Historic District is a historic district in Augusta, Kentucky, on the National Register of Historic Places. Overlooking the Ohio River, the district includes River Side Drive east to Frankfort Street and west to Ferry Street. Houses in the district demonstrate a considerable range of late 18th-and early 19th-century residential architecture.
There are a number of Victorian era villas interspersed among the older houses with varied plans and elevations. The earlier symmetry or regularity is broken up with recessed porches, projecting gabled pavilions, and bay windows. Openings are typically taller and ornamented with hoodmolds and other trim.
