   Lots of the pictures of old Walton were given to me by Ed and Janet
Harden, (Thanks!) who got them from the old Brakefield Drug Store,
where it is assumed they passed from the pharmacist prior
to Mr. Brakefield, one Robert W. Jones.  The three pictures above were in the
group, so I assume they're Walton, but who knows??  If you do, I'd love to hear from you.

Winifed Miller's response to my request above is here.

Ads  from  Robert W. Jones'  Drug Store, and some pics of the front window display are here.

And then there's Walton's most famous home, the Gaines House:

The Boone County Recorder published this piece on the home on July 26, 1899,  there's
an undated piece (we'd guess 1930's - 40's) of unknown authorship here (pdf), while last is Elizabeth
 Coomer's very fine piece called Gaines Tavern (pdf).

A contemporary brochure from the Friends of Gaines Tavern is here. (pdf)
