Walton Road –
Old Burnt Stand


This street generally follows the course of the Old Walton Road, completed in 1801 and connecting present-day Kingston and Carthage. Along this principal land route between east and middle Tennessee rolled wagons taking settlers west, and stages carrying passengers and mail. An inn once stood on this site. After it burned, the area was known locally as "Old Burnt Stand Place."
