Welcome to Walker Community!
Located in the Bradshaw Mountains, south of Prescott, AZ, Walker Community is an old mining district, filled with history. It’s named after Joseph Walker, mountain man, explorer, and guide. He led a party to this valley to discover gold in the summer of 1863.
Today, the valley is filled with rustic cabins and elegant homes. There’s a vibrant community of people here, with an active social calendar. Some live here full-time, while others have second homes here.
Everyone loves it here.

Looks like the Walker Fire Station is getting a new roof.
I didn’t get a chance to stop and take a photo, but it looks like I didn’t need to.
This photo is from the weather cam on top of the roof.
We get email from Bill Loughrige, President
What a wonderful turnout for the Pancake Breakfast last Saturday! Over 200
of you came to enjoy the fare. While the cooks struggled to keep up with
the regular mundane pancakes, bacon and sausage the less traditional
breakfasts were also gone. Things like the smoked salmon was gone in the
first few minutes. One of the jars of pickled Herring also the Bagels and
Cream Cheese disappeared fast. (For you Continental Types) Next month
we’ll be prepared.
We went through 3 flats of strawberries, 2 gallons of milk (and nearly 2 of
chocolate milk), most of […]

Mark Herrin sent me this video of a bear, captured on a game camera.
It was raining for the first time in months, and everyone was very happy for the rain, but it made Walker Day different than years past.
Johnny sent out an email to everyone at 8:00am that said:
It’s the Walker Day final up-date
Amen for the rain. It’s a start. Bring your umbrella’s and show that unquenchable Walker spirit!
Please car pool down as much as possible and try to leave the closer spaces for our guests. I would recommend the Hummingbird Hill parking lot as it is only about 1/4 mile from the station. We have permission to use it. […]
It’s 11:00am on Walker Day. It’s raining, but that doesn’t stop Walker Day.
Activities have been curtailed because of the rain, but there’s still food to eat and garage sale items to buy.
Here are photos at 11:00am.
More info visit https://www.walkerday.org/
The garage sales starts today, right now.
Tomorrow looks like rain (Yah!), so we’ll have to wait to see how that affects Walker Day.
All of the garage sale items were brought out last night and set up for you to buy.
People are down there buying things right now, as I type this.
I already had the one item my wife wanted bought before I got there yesterday, so hurry down before it’s all gone.
