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.

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.

At approximately 9:45pm this evening Walker fire was dispatched to a report of a structure fire in The Potato Patch. The sheriffs office is asking for a evacuation within 1 mile of Poachers Row and Bluff. Watch this page for updates.
Later they posted:
The fire is currently 1 acre in size and no other structures are […]
Bottom line is that it’s not even close to Walker.

V. President John Ohanesian
Secretary Clyde McKay

See you all at Walker Day, June 16th.
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 […]
