One hundred and seventy five years ago, farmers settled in this part of West Michigan and created a Township called Walker, so named for a land agent named Charles I. Walker.
Time passed. The population grew and a business district was developing on Lake Michigan Drive (known as Standale) named for local business man, Howard Stanton.
On November 6, 1962 the Township voted for Walker to become a City and as they say…the rest is history. Fast forward to today, 2012, our City's 50th anniversary is upon us. We hope that you will join us in remembering our past and looking forward to Walker's next 50 years as a great place to live, work and raise a family.
