Walker is a city in Livingston Parish, Louisiana. The population was 6,138 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Statistical Area. The area now known as Walker was founded by Michael Milton and his wife, Martha, in 1853. The Miltons were a pioneering family from North Carolina that settled an area in Alabama, before clearing 400 acres in the piney woods east of the Amite River and Denham Springs. The Federal government recognized the growth of the settlement and opened a post officer as Milton Old Field in 1856. Michael Milton was appointed as postmaster in 1858. In 1890 the post office was renamed after Dr. William Elliott Walker, M.D., a legislator from nearby Springfield, who had, also, served as a Lt. Col. in the Confederate States of America.
Walker became a city in 2011 by proclamation of Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal.
