Archibald Reid

In the mid-1790s, Archibald Reid was active in the early government of Campbell County (founded in 1795), and owned considerable land near today's town of Walton. He apparently established a distillery and a tavern house. Abner Gaines purchased the property from Reid in c.1813.

Reid became one of Boone County's first justices in 1799.
