History:

VACATIONER'S PARADISE

Walker (1,336 alt., 939 pop.), Cass County seat, is located in the southwest corner of Chippewa National Forest, on an Indian reservation (see Cass Lake), and along the shores of historic Leech Lake.

Indians have lived along the pine-covered shores of this lake for centuries. The first white men to penetrate the area bought pelts from them, and soon fur-trading posts were established. One of these posts stood a few miles from the site of the present Walker, on a point jutting into Leech Lake.

When Cass County was established in 1851, the influx of lumbermen already had begun. Thomas Barlow Walker in 1868 purchased a large stand of pine in the vicinity. A few years later, he sold the ground on which the village was built to the Leech Lake Land Company, reserving rights to the timber. After the village was established and named in his honor (incorporated 1896), he sent in his timber cutters. The settlers protested, and their attempt to drive the cutters out was the cause of bitter resentment for many years.

In 1897, the Park Rapids and Leech Lake Railroad was constructed between Park Rapids, Walker, and Cass Lake and, in 1899, was leased to the Great Northern; in 1900, the Minnesota and International was extended to Walker, and took over the Brainerd and Northern in 1901 (see Brainerd).

The soil, a mixed black, brown, and sandy clay, is adapted to the raising of small grains, potatoes, and grasses. Dairying has become the leading industry; an independent creamery began operations in 1923.

The county offices, jail, and sheriff's residence are in the modern Cass County Courthouse (Minnesota Ave. bet. 3rd and 4th Sts.), and the municipal offices are in the Village Hall (6th St. bet. Minnesota Ave. and Front St.), erected in 1937. Pupils from the rural areas are brought by bus to the Walker Public School (cor. Highland Ave. and 4th St.), a brick structure. The Walker Museum (Minnesota Ave. bet. 2nd and 3rd Sts.), started in 1894, contains a collection of native animals and birds. In the Conservation Building, Indian bead work and articles of handicraft are made and displayed.

Herds on the 1,000-acre Tianna Farms (State 34, 5 miles south) include 100 purebred Guernsey and 50 Aberdeen Angus cattle that have set State and national records. Approximately 75 per cent of the Guernseys have the blood of La Noce of Riverside Farm, first Guernsey-bred cow to make a world's production record (see Barnum).

Walker is in the center of the region known as the Paul Bunyan Playground (see Brainerd; Bemidji), which each year attracts vacationists, fishermen, and hunters to its lakes. Summer resorts, built to accommodate a steadily increasing tourist trade, furnish launch service and provide both Indian and white guides.

WALKER, a city and the county seat, located on Leech Lake, Shingobee Township, sections 21 and 22, was named in honor of Thomas Barlow Walker, who had large lumbering and land interests in Cass County and in several other counties of northern Minnesota. He was born in Xenia, Ohio, February 1, 1840, came to Minnesota in 1862 and was the surveyor of parts of the St. Paul and Duluth Railway line, commenced in 1868 the purchase of great tracts of pine lands, and later built and operated, in Crookston and elsewhere, many large lumber mills. He resided in Minneapolis and maintained a very valuable and choice art gallery to which the public were freely welcomed. An autobiographic paper by Mr. Walker is published in the MHS Collections ([1915] 15: 455-78, with his portrait).

The city was incorporated as a village on March 10, 1896, and its post office also opened in 1896. In its early development, the site was a resort community with abundant hunting and fishing in very scenic surroundings. In 1900 Fort Walker was at this location with Lieut. A. B. Downworth, commander. The village had a station of the Great Northern Railway in section 22.
