 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 [[transportation_in_boone_county|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. 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 [[transportation_in_boone_county|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.
