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.

Free Pancake Breakfast This Saturday

Got an anonymous email from WFPA, telling us about the pancake breakfast this Saturday.

I didn’t use to go to these because it’s Saturday morning and who wants to get up that early?

I’ve been to a few and they are really good. The food is great.

I mean, there’s as much bacon as you can eat. Life doesn’t get better than that.

Of course, I remember the last breakfast I went to, a month ago.

It was right before the Historic Mine Tour, which was awesome.

Then later that same day, the Goodwin Fire started. […]

WFPA 50th Anniversary / Fire Fighter Appreciation Day / Pig Roast

Email from Johnny O.

Please mark your calendars for SEPTEMBER 3, 2017.

It’s our Annual Firefighter Appreciation Day / Pig Roast / WFPA 50th Anniversary.

We have added an extra hour this year as it’s also our 50th year celebration as a non-profit fire department.

Here’s a great way to thank your hard working volunteer fire fighters, and pack in a year supply of cholesterol, all at the same time.

The WFPA will smoke the pig, simmer some beans and offer light refreshments.

The rest is pot luck style. Please bring one […]

Hail On Walker Road

I ran some errands in town this afternoon.

Coming back down Highway 69 towards Walker Road, I drove into a dark wall of rain.

I turned down Walker Road and it got heavier and heavier.

Then it got louder, when the quarter inch hail just dumped on us

Vehicles were pulling over and stopping, and I did too.

I took this video at 3:20pm, just past the Highland Center.

Temp went from 92 degrees to 57 degrees.
