The Walton Home

The oldest house in Benton County, Arkansas. Almost two hundred years ago the simple brick home looked out into an orchard with beautiful tall trees in the distance. Good people attended the home and worked to gather the fruit that provided an income for the owners of the estate. Walnuts grow in abundance there to this day.

The walls of the residence are eighteen inches thick. The polished wood floors hold the stories of many generations, and the walls bear witness to the labors and gratitude of many occupants. Not far away the Trail of Tears wound through the valley, and in the forests one can still find adobe from long ago. The homesteading of the area enabled common folk their American dreams, while a small river flowed through, bubbling over the polished rocks in the valley.
