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.

WOW! What a great Walker Day. It all pulled together nicely. Lots of new faces, both visitors and helpers.
We estimate that 400 people stopped by from 9-2. We served close to 350 lunches of which probably 100 were given to our firefighters, helpers, car guys…and even our local postal delivery guy, Ed. Lots of smiling faces!
Check out walkerday.org for pictures.
Special thanks to our sponsors that allow us to hit the ground running with NO expenses. Gene Tomek, (long time supporter), and Conrad Walton, […]

Walker Day Garage Sale started this morning. Here’s a report.
WalkerDay.org for more info.
We had a great day today! We all made some new friends and sold tons of stuff under a beautiful sky. We received more donations at the end that will go out tomorrow. Still a nice heap of cool, reusable merchandise for people to dig through, (and now it’s all neatly organized).
I have been asked about a cake walk. YES! The cake walk is always a BIG feature at Walker Day. Please bring your homemade cakes to the station after […]
Johnny needs some help on Walker Day.
Walker Day is looking great. I believe we have secured a spot in the Prescott Courier news paper. That, coupled with nice weather, means a BIG turnout.
It will be “all hands on deck”. I will need extra hands to direct parking, flip/turn burgers/dogs, shuttle people to and from distant parking spaces, help park classic cars, take tickets…an a dozen other things that WILL come up. Please let me know if you plan to help…or just show up on Saturday, (yes…Walker Day), around 11am and find me.
The yard sale set-up starts Thursday, (yes…tomorrow), […]
Please note that fire restrictions are being considered for implementation as soon as June 14th. Very generally, anything that involves flame (campfires, smoking etc) or sparks (welding etc) outside would be prohibited even on private property if restrictions are implemented.
We will have more details if/when we go into restrictions.

About a half mile past the mailboxes, on the dirt part of Walker Road, as the road starts to go up the valley, Lynx Creek would cross the road twice.
The road would always wash out at those two places. There was asphalt there, but it had huge, chunky holes in it.
Every Winter, it would get worse.
This week, they put in culverts, under the road, and now they are putting in concrete over the road.
Expect some delays as they pour concrete. One lane is poured and driveable. They are pouring the other lanes today.
Everything should be finished […]
I’ve received this info from a couple sources.
Our community postman Ed says that due to overcrowding the Post Office is going to remove any mailbox in the 100+ mailbox row that hasn’t had mail in the past one year.
If you would like to keep your mailbox, you need to receive mail in your name.
Apparently, the plan is to remove the “no longer in use” boxes and place them on the ground below so new families can have the space for their box.
If you have questions or need more information please call the Post Office at 928-778-1890.
