Percival Southgate House

 Percival Southgate House This house, sitatuted on North Main Street in Walton, was labeled “Southgate Heirs” on the 1883 atlas and is believed to have been built for a Canadian named Percival Southgate during the Civil War era. One of the great I-houses of the Covington-Lexington Turnpike, the imposing Southgate House presents a five-bay facade. Extending the width of the facade is a full-width porch with robust, modillioned cornice and pedimented full-height pavilion, which may have been a somewhat later addition.
