The Maysville town site lies on a raised bench above the flood plain and on the outside of a meander curve at the point where Limestone Creek flows into the Ohio River. The Maysville Road switchbacks down the face of the south bluff and the city's west end residential district. This chapter interprets Maysville's riverside orientation, its commercial, residential, and manufacturing configuration, its historical development, and its present landscape.
