Gaines Crossroads (Ky.)
Walton is one of the oldest settlements in Boone County, and grew to be the largest town in the county in the late 19th century, due to the Covington-Lexington Turnpike and the advent of the railroads. With the move to interstate travel, Florence has overtaken Walton as the largest town.
The town cemetery, founded by the First Baptist Church of Walton is located north of downtown.
