Circa 1942

The Walton's Mountain Country Store was known as Walker’s Store
back in thee old days because it was operated by Willie Walker,
the son of Schuyler Walker head of one of the earliest families to settle inthe area who gave it the name of Schuyler.
For many years the store was vacant and seeking escape from that multitude of brothers and sisters as a teenager I used to hideout there for the solitude I needed in which to write.
