The city of Walker Minnesota is named for Thomas Barlow Walker, original owner of the town site and lumberman in Cass County and several other northern Minnesota counties. As an important shipping point for logs to the south and supplies to the north, Walker grew rapidly during the 1890's. It became the county seat for Cass County in 1897, and by 1900 contained a population of 500. Today Walker contains a population of approximately 1200.
