The town has a fair number of old buildings, mostly in the town square. It also has a lot of red limestone homes that were built with flat thin stones. They are of an era in 1940-60's. The square was relocated to here in early 1900's so it could hold more events. Besides Walton Visitor Center as an anchor of the square, there is also the Courthouse. It was designed by A.O. Clark, a reknowned local architect who did a lot of work also in Fayetteville. Cost to build was $200,000 in and was constructed in 1928. There is also a couple of restaurants and some shops to buy things.
