The Abner Gaines House was built on the Old Nicholson Road in Walton, Kentucky in 1814. It is the oldest house in Walton. The home's location was home to a tavern as early as 1795. Abner Gaines came to Kentucky from Virginia in 1804. Gaines opened a Post Office in his tavern in 1815, then began the first stagecoach line between Cincinnati, Ohio and Lexington, Kentucky.

Local Historians speculate that slaves owned by Gaines worked as skilled craftsmen to build the 17 room house, two and a half story main house. The home was built in the Federal Style.

The home and convert|7.6|acre|m2 were purchased by the City of Walton in December 2006 for $325,000.00. The home will undergo restoration during the next year.
