High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Major Walter M. Walker
was a pioneer of the U.S. state of Oregon. He had risen to the rank
of major during the Indian Wars, and crossed the plains in 1848
with a train of 55 wagons. He settled in the area now known as Polk
County, Oregon, on the west bank of the Willamette River, not far
from the current location of Walker Middle School in what is now
West Salem. He had brought a large supply of nursery stock with
him, and quickly set about planting orchards. He found that the
soil of the area was well adapted to fruit, and consequently, fruit
orchards remain an important industry in the area.
