J.J. Walton Jr. House
Originally built in the center of a 4 acre Estate in 1868, the Walton house was later moved to a different part of the property prior to 1900, when the street grid was changed. At the time the house was moved, a porch was removed from the left wing and a two level bay window put in its place. The entire house was set on a high foundation, with additional service wings on the rear. The second photo (shown in reverse from how the house actually stands) shows the water tower and other outbuilding which once stood on the property. The house was occupied by Judge Walton's youngest daughter until her passing in 1963, at which time it became a restaurant, which it remains.
