The Walker-Stone House was built in 1847 by David Walker. Born in Kentucky, Walker came to Fayetteville in the late 1830?s. Unemployed, he got a training in law and later on began his Arkansas law career with Crawford County Circuit. Starting 1832, he made a mark holding several positions including prosecuting attorney, territorial legislature, state senator, constitutional convention, and Arkansas Supreme Court Justice.

After building the house, it was sold to merchant Stephen K. Stone. Struck during the Civil War while the Stone family was there, the property was then bought by Edward K. Stone, a grandson of Stephen Stone. Being an architect, he began the structure?s restoration process in the 1970?s.

Today, the house provides a venue for local offices but remains a historical landmark for being unscathed during the Civil War.
