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.

I wanted to endorse Scott Plumer as a write-in candidate for the WFPA board.
I received this email from Mark Herrin, a huge supporter of our community.
Neighbors of Walker,
In about 8 days, we will be having the Walker Fire Departments annual meeting and the election of new officers for the Board of Directors. This year we will be filling four open positions on the Board.
For several years now, our Board of Directors have been operating our all volunteer department with incredible cohesion and positive forward growth. This has been possible due to the outstanding leadership on the Board of […]
Email from Walker Fire:
Today Walker Fire was dispatched to what came to be called the Bluff Fire in the middle of Potato Patch. Walker Patrol 85 was first on scene and sized the fire up to be about an acre (turned out to be a little bigger) with one structure involved. Patrol 85 was able to knock down the fire as it threatened the one structure keeping the damage to what amounted to a charred roof, no serious damage done inside home.
The response from Walker Fire as well as neighboring departments was tremendous. Hoping not to leave anyone out Walker […]

There was some rain on May 1, followed by about a quarter inch of snow on May 2.
It wasn’t much, but it was something, and everything helps.
Because it’s been in the 80s the last few days, I’m guessing that this is the last snow until Fall.
Trees are really dry here, so please be extra careful with fire, smoking, shooting, chain saws, and anything else that could cause a fire.

Official Press Release: https://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/prescott/news-events/?cid=FSEPRD576679
The Prescott National Forest, along with all local entities, will enact Stage 1 fire restrictions at 8 a.m. Friday, April 20.
“There has been no appreciable amount of precipitation since the end of last summer’s monsoons and the little bit or rain and snow we received in January and February did nothing to relieve the situation,” said Pete Gordon, Fuels, Fire, & Aviation staff officer for the Prescott National Forest.
Much of the state of Arizona is in extreme drought with a forecast of below normal precipitation and above normal temps through the end of May, […]
Here’s the update from Johnny about this year’s Walker Day.
Looks like it’s only going to be a yard sale.
We are getting on this a little late, but we are planning to have some kind
of Walker Day fundraiser on June 16th. I only had a couple people offer to
help in any way with Walker Day, so we will have to do a smaller version
than last year.
The BIG yard sale is a must, so please start saving your donations. We will
start accepting them after May 1st and store them in the original station
building behind the new station. Please […]
They’ve been working on the dirt part of Walker road. They’ve been dropping dirt in the rough spots and pot holes, then grading over the top to smooth it out.
It’s like butter!
The data of up to 87 million people on FaceBook was improperly shared with the political consultancy Cambridge Analytica.
I know a lot of people don’t like FaceBook. They have privacy concerns or don’t want to it to be a time suck.
I get all that, but I love FaceBook. I’m careful what I post, but I use it every day, and will continue to use it.
It’s very useful for people in Walker. The Potato Patch group and the Walker Fire page have been valuable during the fire, or to find out snow and road conditions, or to get advice on services. […]
