This historic Fayetteville home was constructed in 1847 for the attorney, judge, and state political leader David Walker. Local business owner Steven Stone acquired the property three years later. On October 3, 1864, the west side of the home was hit by cannon fire that came from Confederate lines as they attempted to thwart the Union advance into this part of Arkansas. The historic home fell into disrepair during the mid-20th century when it was divided into four apartments, but the building was restored by one of Stone's grandsons in the 1970s and is now the location of a local law office.
