Marker Text Jefferson merchant and former mayor, Robert Bruce Walker (1854-1930) had this home built for his family in 1910. An active civic leader, Walker later served as president of the Commercial National Bank. The classical revival style house features colossal order Doric columns interwoven with a wraparound porch; front entry with sidelights and transom; and brick chimneys with elaborate corbelled caps. It remained in the Walker family until 1972. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1990
