What? The Walton Building
Where? 591 D.T. Walton Sr. Way

The Story: The Walton Building, and the street it sits on, is named for Dr. D.T. Walton Sr., a local dentist and prominent Civil Rights activist. This building housed the epitome of successful African American business in the area. Multiple businesses were housed in the building from the original Dewit Walton the dentist to Dixie Tobacco and Candy. However, the building truly flourished thanks to the Dixon John Radio Service and J L Montgomery Home Art Supply bringing city wide recognition to the district and this building in particular.
