Brooks’ Landing, upstream from the Limestone Creek landing, served riverboats with unloading cranes and warehouses. The site became East Maysville, expansive and industrial, which lies east of Limestone Creek on a raised river bench. A railroad reached the site in 1853 and rail freight depots and machine shops clustered here. Annexed by Maysville in 1867, East Maysville included residential subdivisions that spread across the entire flood plain from the river's edge to the base of the bluff, some of them served by a trolley line. Tobacco warehouses and processing plants, and machinery manufacturing plants clustered along the railroad tracks and a horse race track was laid out on the upper river bench. An expansive city cemetery lies on one of the highest points on the city's east side.
