Text of sign:

 

Walker County

 

Created December 18, 1833, and named for Major Freeman Walker of Augusta, prominently attorney and United States Senator.

Here the fierce Chickamaugas preyed upon pioneers, and in turn defeated and driven away; here Federals and Confederates 

locked in combat in 1863.

 

Lookout Mountain and its spur Pigeon Mountain on the West, Taylor's and Dick's Ridges on the east of the county provide 

spectacular scenery.  Rich coal and iron deposits abound; between the mountains lie fertile valleys.
