HistoryA story worth protecting
As early as the 1930’s the Walton and National Avenue areas were developed as industrial complexes to serve the city’s expansions. The buildings were built to be functional and strong and the surrounding neighborhood was developed as economy housing for the families that worked in the area. The character and grit of this area still lingers today amongst our many progressive and modern developments.
Built by Industry
The Warehouse Block has been a slow evolution. Following their Father’s effort to rehabilitate the area and bring value to the neighborhood, the Walker brothers fixed up one building after another. What was a gritty, rundown, abandoned area is now thriving with a diverse network of businesses. The businesses work together to bring up the area and offer something cool to visitors.
