Walton Cemetery

According to local legend, the Walton Cemetery was created when old Mrs. Snow of the First Baptist Church of Walton (originally located at the far southwestern edge of the current cemetery entrance) decided she wanted to be buried next to the church. The church then obtained the land to create a ”burying ground” for the town residents. No headstone exists for Mrs. Snow.

The cemetery is still “active,” with burials continuing.
